I’m Suffolk born and spent my childhood at Aldhurst Farm situated between Leiston and
Saxmundham before moving to Norfolk, then Oakham in Rutland. Some thirty-six years ago I returned to Suffolk with my two children and have lived in Saxmundham for the past twenty-eight years.
After semi-retiring from working in company finance, administration and health and safety roles, during the past few years I’ve engaged with volunteer community work. I set up the local litter picking group, inaugurated the Memorial Trail in conjunction with the Town Council and volunteered with IP17 GNS, Saxmundham Museum and the local Poppy Appeal. With a keen interest in the development of Saxmundham for the benefit of all, I recently joined the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group.
I have a passion for history and heritage and as a mature student, studied part-time with the University of Suffolk and graduated with a BA Honours in History in 2019.
