With Nicky, my wife of 56 years, I have been a resident in South Stoke for the last 19 years. As a Stoker I have been on the parish council (twice), chair of the amenities charity, a school governor and a director of the shop board. My career was in the engineering and construction of world scale projects, latterly I have worked as a consultant to an expert witness. As a keen vegetable gardener I have learned to share my efforts and rewards with the wonderful wildlife of South Stoke
I’ve lived in South Stoke with my husband for over 30 years and we have
3 grown-up children. I worked in advertising for several years then re-trained in accountancy, specialising in the education sector. I recently retired as Finance Manager at a local secondary school, where I’d worked for 10 years. I was a Governor at Wallingford School and Treasurer of Wallingford Rowing Club.
A relative newcomer to South Stoke, having moved here in 2021 with my wife and 2 dogs.
