I came to the Witterings in 1994, having lived in Chiswick, West London, from childhood. I have three adult daughters, one of whom lives in Australia. As a Parish Councillor, I hope to fulfill my duties to the very best of my ability, with particular interests in coastal defences, parking problems within the village centres and maintaining recreational open spaces.

I was born in the West Midlands. I, with my wife and our two children, moved to the Witterings in 1975 to join St Richard’s Hospital as Principal Biomedical Scientist, a job which was very challenging and enjoyable. Our two other children were born in the Witterings. I am now retired.
I joined East Wittering Parish Council in 1979 and was chairman from 1984 to 1999. I am actively involved in village affairs and also do voluntary work as a Seafarers Welfare Visitor in Portsmouth.

I was born in the West Midlands and moved to Portchester in 1984, I  then moved to Portsmouth where I lived for 25 years. I have lived in East Wittering for three years and half years.  I absolutely love it. The mixture of seaside holiday place and countryside is perfect with a two lovely villages right on my doorstep. East Wittering and Bracklesham, i thought it only right that i join the Parish Council and try to contribute something towards the villages. I joined the Parish Council in December and find it an honour to do my bit for the place where i live and play. I run my own Design & Print Company which has served my family and myself well over the past 28 years. In my spare time I help my better half Tracey with the design side of the local magazine “Local Life”.   I have 2 children, hardly children now, my son is 27 and my daughter is 24, they both have fled the nest to make there own lives along the south coast, but they regularly visit and love it here. In our free time we enjoy all the village has to offer, shopping locally and eating out, often strolling along the beach, summer or winter with the dogs.

My wife and I have lived on the Manhood Peninsula for over 25 years. I recently retired as a Pensions Consultant and my wife retired from the Wittering Chemist at the same time. I have a grown up married daughter who is a teacher, a son who works in Tangmere and now two grandsons. My priorities for East Wittering and Bracklesham are:

  • Increase leisure and health facilities
  • Maintain and improve our sea defences
  • Improve the promenade along the sea front
  • Improve the road access to Chichester
  • Improve the facilities for the under 18s

I have lived in the Witterings area since I was a boy, apart from a brief period when I was serving during the war. Eventually I settled back in East Wittering, with my Wife & purchased a shop in Shore Road in 1963 retiring in 2003. I served in Chichester Police force as a Special Sergeant during 1965 -1982. I have been an active member of the Parish Council for 20 years. I have seen the Witterings grow and expand over the years and would like to see the infrastructure & services, including Policing, commensurate with the expanded population.

My husband and I have lived in Bracklesham in excess of 8 years. Prior to this we were in Sidlesham for 18 years. I therefore feel I know the area well.

My working life began as a psychiatric nurse, followed by 25 years in the teaching profession. I also qualified as a youth leader, subsequently working in several youth clubs and establishing a scheme for disabled children.

Since retiring I have been involved with several charities, particularly St. Wilfrid’s Hospice and Brent Lodge Wildlife Hospital. I was able to set up and run their first shop in Wittering Walk until a manager could be appointed.

I am particularly interested in the provision of youth and sporting activities in the area, sea defences and generally enhancing community spirit.

I have had a home in Bracklesham for twelve years, having had a caravan for thirty years beforehand. It has always felt like home. My wife and I are now both retired teachers with a grown up family of four who live in the UK and New Zealand.
In Ealing , where I lived previously, I served as a local councillor and school governor for many years. This experience means that I have wide knowledge of many aspects of local legislation. I am looking forward to being a parish councillor and taking a particular interest in planning and all community activities.
