I joined the parish council in 2011. In the past I worked in industry – mainly in the automotive engineering sector. I find the experience of local government very interesting and enlightening. I became vice chair in 2013 and took over as chair in 2015. I have lived in Hucclecote since 2000, and I am involved in the local community. My son and his family also live locally and I enjoy spending time with them on their various activities.
