I have lived in Windsor for over 50 years and worked as a Chartered Engineer in the oil industry for 30 years travelling and working wide world.

I took early retirement at 57 and retrained as a Magistrate and became a Chairman of the bench.

I have been closely involved in Datchet for the past 35 years initially through the Datchet Players, then I was almost immediately appointed to the Village Hall Management Committee.

More recently 20 years ago I became the Clerk to the Barker Bridge House Trust, a major Charity in Datchet and local benefactor.

For many years I attended as a member of the public the DPC council meetings and then in 2019 I successfully put my name forward at the elections and was duly appointed to the Datchet Parish Council.

My interests are in the areas of finance and the ongoing success of the Village Hall as a community asset, in addition to supporting other Datchet Societies such as the Datchet Village Society and Wild About Datchet.

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.
