I was born and raised at Colston Bassett, and moved to Cropwell Bishop when I married my wife Eunice in 1971. We had one daughter, and one granddaughter who live locally. Unfortunately I was widowed in September 2011.
Cropwell Bishop Parish Council:
I was elected to Cropwell Bishop Parish Council in 1991 and elected Chairman in 2003, and finally stood down from the chairman’s position at the 2022 AGM.
Though no longer chairman, I continue to attend outside meetings and still represent the Council on other local village organisations.
- Memorial Hall Committee
- The Parish Plan Monitoring Group.
- Entertainments & Activities Working Group.
- The village Youth Group.
- The Primary Schools’ Pupils’ Council.
- I also co-edit and draft articles for Cropwell Bishop News.
My main interests are Politics, Reading, History and Vintage Commercial Vehicles. I also own a touring caravan and enjoy my breaks away in the caravan. Unfortunately, a few years ago I had my spine fused and have had two replacement knee operations. My other interests were walking and gardening both of which has now been curtailed.
