Like many Australians, I was drawn to the UK to use it as a travel base but my interest in British motorbikes and cars also flourished. For many years, I ran my own business restoring classic cars and I also have experience in the building industry, metalwork fabrication and product development. Most recently, I’ve turned to inventing structural connectors.

When my wife and I moved to Datchet in 1996, we were keen to learn more about the history of the village and the house we were renovating so we became active members of Datchet Village Society. In recent years, I have been helping to organise community events such as the Royal Wedding Party on the Rec, Christmas on The Green, Datchet Art Festival at the fete, and Datchet’s annual welcome for the veteran vehicles running in the ‘Ellis Journey’. Organising these events is immensely rewarding. They are a great opportunity to meet local people, groups, schools and organisations, to promote local businesses, and bring the community together.

Before I became a Parish Councillor, I attended DPC meetings as a member of the public. I am also a keen supporter of the valuable work of the Neighbourhood Plan team and more recently the Wild About Datchet environmental group. I believe that the unique character of Datchet and its historical and environmental assets need careful protection, and I would like to raise awareness of what we can do as a community, to help protect these assets. We also urgently need to consider how our community will meet the challenge of the Climate Emergency and I would welcome the opportunity to help promote and encourage action through our Council.

"My wife and I moved to Datchet 6 years ago and our 4 children spend many days visiting us in this lovely village, which we have made our long term home. We run our businesses from Datchet and enjoy, the village atmosphere every day. I joined The Datchet Parrish Council to work hard to improve the village, join other volunteers on the Parrish Council to maintain, continually improve the village for all the residents and businesses that benefit from this community. My family and I are keen to see the highest standard of living for all residents maintained and improved for everyone in the village of Datchet. As everyone knows this is a continuous project and I will hope to add value to all that visit, live or work within our community."

I have lived in Datchet since 1995, and have recently retired following a career in both the Automotive and Airline industry. My wife has run her business in Datchet for more than 15 years.

I have appreciated the pleasures and benefits of Datchet over these many years and I am now in a position to support the council in maintaining Datchet as a great place to live and work.

My first love is gardening then current affairs. I think very deeply and often write down my thoughts by way of a poem. I am intensely inquisitive and will not give up on any matter until I am satisfied I have got to bottom of it. I have always had an urgent need to put right anything that is wrong. In my youth I was a member of CND and protested vigorously.

I am very observant and open minded that's why I like a good debate and my final decision will be well thought out, never rushed. 

I would like to see Datchet work as well as it possibly can as a whole community. All our local businesses should prosper for the benefit of the village and St.Mary's and Churchmead schools should prosper for our local students.

I strongly believe that none of my wishes for the village should come at the cost of Datchet's own natural beauty.

I have been a member of the Council for 11 years, and still feel there is plenty of work to be done at this level of government, since we live among the people we represent. I am especially concerned to make sure that we hear and represent the voices of people living at the fringes of the village, such as the far ends of Slough Road, London Road and Horton Road and all the small estates in between, whose voices are not heard as much as we would like. I think that this will bring the village together and so make for a stronger community.

Born in 1950 I lived in Wraysbury (as did my parents and grandparents before me) until 1970. As the eldest of seven children I am pleased to say that many of my relatives still live there. After short periods of living in Slough and Langley I moved with my family to Datchet in 1977. I have three children and eight grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

As a qualified engineer I worked at Ford Motor Co., EMI at Hayes and Graviners at Colnbrook prior to working in Wraysbury since 1994. First elected to Datchet Parish Council in July 1986 I was Chairman 1992/5. I was actively involved in the village centre refurbishment in 1990 which resulted in a ‘Best Kept Village’ award and I represented the village at the six week Maidenhead Windsor and Eton flood alleviation scheme Public Inquiry at Reading in 1992.

I stood for re-election to Datchet Parish Council in the hope that a new Council would do better in representing the electorate. In particular I am concerned about development on Green Belt and about the protection and maintenance of Village assets. I believe that all village land should be publicly accessible, that the village greens should be watered when necessary and that parishioner should be aware of the impact of existing flood alleviation proposals.

I have detailed knowledge of Jubilee River design, structural and operational shortcomings and I intend to submit evidence at the forthcoming River Thames Scheme (Datchet to Teddington) Inquiry due in about three years time. If constructed the RTS will be the largest, most complex and most expensive fluvial flood alleviation scheme ever constructed in this country and I will do my utmost to ensure that the Environment Agency does not repeat the mistakes of the past.
