Essex CM7 4RF
I’ve lived in the centre of Great Bardfield since 1987 with my wife Mary and three sons Tom, Nick and William. All three attended the village school where I spent ten years on the PTA, (two as Chair) and four years as Governor. All three sons went on to local comprehensive school Helena Romanes.
While Mary was working as Supervisor at the village Pre-school, I led a small team to design and build a new Pre-school and After School Club building. We secured a £123,206 grant from the Lotteries Commission and the project opened in the school grounds in 1996.
I tend to get more involved with projects and fundraising that have a direct effect on the Community rather than the wider, bureaucratic issues. On the Parish Council I have applied my interest in environmental design to leading the Village Design Statement team and currently chair the Pavilion fund-raising team. In 2008 I resurrected the village Youth Club and currently chair its management committee, supervising far too often on club evenings!
