Sue and I have lived in Reigate for 30 years. We moved from Yeovil in Somerset.  My career has been in the aviation and aerospace.  Doing that work, I travelled extensively often to places where aircraft were designed and manufactured. 

Brexit was a blow. It’s created unnecessary difficulties for business and travellers. I’m an original Liberal. Having joined the party in the 80s whilst living in Cheltenham. I’ve been a candidate time and time again. Twice having been elected as a Councillor. 

Campaigning is a way of life. Every time someone says – what’s the point? It doubles my enthusiasm for having a go. We only have one life and its as well we try to make the world a better place.
