"Born in the North East, I have made my home in the area for over 35 years, finally settling in Edenbridge in 2005. I enjoyed a successful career as an IT professional for many years before I retired. I enjoy reading, travelling and am a keen photographer, with photographs published in a number of books. I am involved with a number of local societies such as Twinning and the Friends of the Church. I have also used my photography skills to help local organisations such as the Eden Valley Museum, as well as to promote the town. I have had the privilege of representing Edenbridge as a District Councillor since 2015 and a Town Councillor since 2007, including serving as Town Chairman. In these roles I have championed residents on local issues as well as worked to improve our town and, with your support, I will continue to do so."
