“I spent most of my working life with Lloyds Bank in London and East Kent, taking early retirement when I was a Branch Manager. Following this, I became the Fundholding and Practice Manager of a large local doctors’ surgery. 

I was a member of Herne Bay Rotary Club for many years and am the current Chair of the Canterbury Ramblers' Group. 

I started my involvement with Kent Kids before becoming a trustee of Strode Park in 2009; I became Chairman in 2012.

I’m married with three children and my main interests are walking, golf and my allotment.”
