I grew up in London and trained there as a solicitor but have lived in Radford Semele since 1975. Most of that time I practised as a solicitor in Leamington and the surrounding area but am now retired. For many years I was a member of Radford Semele Parish Council and served a total of seven years as chairman. If elected I would work with Warwick District Council to represent the interests of all the villages within the Ward.
I was Organiser for Meals on Wheels in Warwick District until 2010 when the contract for provision and supply of meals was transferred to a commercial provider.
I am a governor at Sydenham Primary School in Leamington Spa and am currently vice-chairman of governors.
Developments in the area have caused increased pressure on its infrastructure: There is now increased traffic on roads in the Ward, particularly the A425, and a rise in parking problems. Many village amenities have been lost: I believe that where they remain they should be given all possible support.
In some parts of the Ward there are problems due to work relating to HS2 and concerns over the lack of access to High Speed Broadband. If elected I will do all that I can to help with these.
