I joined as Parish Councillor in July 2019 as i'm interested in how the community can improve its sustainability and resilience, food production and distribution, and biodiversity. I am a member of Uffculme Green Team, Sustainable Tiverton, Grantlands Residents Association and Tiverton Bee Keepers. I volunteer for Devon Freewheelers and Re-Rooted Cafe and Community Fridge. My hobbies include walking, cycling, motorcycling and photography.

I became Parish Councillor since 2017 because I wanted to know my locality better and feel part of the community. I wanted to achieve more representation of Craddock, Ashill and the rural community. I have achieved a clearer understanding of Parish, Mid Devon and Devon County Council powers and planning practice, and the privilege of getting to know the Mens Club and the Green Team.
I joined the Parish Council in April 2018 in order to represent and to be able to give something back to my community. I had previously felt that our Parish Council was some 'distant body' and I wanted parishioners, particularly younger people and parents, to feel they had someone approachable to represent them.
