I was born in Sudbury and still live there with my wife. I have been the Suffolk County Councillor for the Sudbury East and Waldingfield (Acton, Chilton, Great and Little Waldingfield) Division since May 2005. I’m now into my 14th year of service to the town and immediate area.
I’ve lived in Bury St Edmunds and its surrounds all my life. I am married to Paul and we have two young boys. Paul and I run our own personal wellness business in Bury town centre and are both serving Borough Councillors.
I became a County Councillor in May 2017, having lived in Suffolk for nearly 30 years with my husband Martin and our four children. It is my pleasure to represent Thingoe South Division. The Division includes 20 hamlets/villages south of Bury St Edmunds.
I was born in Pakenham and brought up in Tostock. I went to Elmswell Primary and then the County Grammar in Bury. I trained to be an accountant, but then moved into payroll software and ran my own payroll bureau and training business until 2016.
I moved to Ipswich in December 1985. I have been involved in politics since 1979 and soon became the Chairman of the local branch in a village in Essex. I am married with three children, seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
I was brought up in Suffolk and have lived here permanently with my wife, Clare, and three children since 1990. After 30 years in investment banking and financial services, I became a local business owner in 2010.
My wife, who has family from Suffolk, and I moved to make our permanent home here in 2011. I have worked in charitable and private sector organisations and am a director of a national retail property company.
