I came to live in Thringstone 15 years ago to work with young people in Coalville. I soon became interested in local issues and eight years ago successfully became one of Thringstone’s Councillors. My wife Julie is a community nurse serving the people of Ashby, Ibstock and Measham. My daughter and granddaughter also live in Thringstone.
I am a founding member of the Friends of Thringstone. I am on the executive committee of the Thringstone House Community Centre, Grace Dieu Priory Trust and Whitwick Parish Council. Before moving from Hinckley I served as a councillor on Hinckley and Bosworth council. I was approximately 20 years in the Territorial Army and for a short time a Retained Fireman. I am a member of Unison, and Amnesty International.
I am proud to be a councillor for Thringstone and would like to continue in that role. I would respectfully ask you to consider voting for me at the election on May 7th.
