About Me

I am fifty-one and a retired senior police officer. I successfully performed a wide variety of leadership and specialist roles during my 30 years public service and was commended many times. I hold three UK medals, including the ‘Police Long Service and Exemplary Conduct Medal’ and I am a recipient of UK policing’s, rarely awarded, highest operational honour given for my ‘extreme moral courage and leadership’ whilst commanding the initial response in South East Asia following the Tsunami. I  live in Snettisham with my wife and two children, who both attend local schools. Having lived and worked in many places I feel proud and blessed to be a resident of this beautiful part of Norfolk. I am an active Parish Councillor in Snettisham, chairing its amenities committee and am Vice-Chair of a local primary school board of governors. I can be regularly seen helping at local fund-raising activities and village events. In 2016, I established and then led the ‘WASP’ community action campaign which caused NCC to reverse its decision to offer up 3400 acres adjacent to the villages of Snettisham, Dersingham and Ingoldisthorpe to open mining exploration, which would have been harmful to the local environment, people’s health, road safety (the plan had been to put potentially over 100 lorries a day extra past Sandringham and Wolferton) and tourism jobs. I am a keen dog-walker, golfer and martial artist (recently representing England on the World Karate Society Squad).
