I joined The Parish Council in May 2015 having lived in the village for 11 years. I run Unity Metrix Ltd, a Cyber-Security company and I have a penchant for fiddling with guitars, studying martial arts and a love for travel. I wanted to give something back to the community that I love so much and I enjoy delivering solutions to the many local challenges presented every month.
I would like to see improved engagement with Parishioners and to fully embrace the hand that we are being dealt by central government; if they want local councils to take on more responsibility then let’s do it, let us decide what makes the Parish so great and do more of that!
I think it is a shame that small communities seem to be less and less community-spirited these days and I am committed to doing whatever I can in order to help maintain and improve community relations within The Parish. I believe that the council should play a key role in encouraging, supporting and augmenting sports and social clubs, fairs and other events, activities for children etc. inasmuch as we have the power to do so.
I am also one of the neighbourhood watch coordinators for the village and pleased to note that our crime rates are comparatively very low.
