As a member of the Cropwell Bishop community for over 30yrs I decided to take my life gained skills and experiences to help in a way that I felt would be beneficial to the village as a whole.
Joining the Parish Council gave me that opportunity and also allowed me to have a voice within the community whereby I could be creative, as well as non-politically driven, to assist the residents in their quests.
By accepting the position of Chairman, I have now fully committed myself to engaging even closer with Borough Council and hopefully empowering me to take the stance sometimes required to open dialogue at that level.
My responsibilities within the Parish Council as Chairman are now to include the duty of presiding over regular meetings and ensuring that the Parish Council always has the village interests at its heart.
Part of this new position also is to act as the interface between the residents of Cropwell Bishop and the Parish Council, of which it is my intention to uphold, wherever or whenever practical to do so.
My personal time is my own, however, my ethic is that people will be heard, and so I will be making myself available, as much as possible, for general discussion within reason.
My personal interests include golf, walking the dog, cycling and keeping my hand in with some DIY plus a little bit of car action.
