I moved to Langham 7 years ago where I purchased the Homestead on the outskirts of the village it had previously been used as a polo yard. I converted it into a state of the art horse racing yard which as proved very successful over the years.
I joined Langham Parish Council about 18 months ago mainly to help the community and feel more of a part of it.

My family has lived in Langham since the 1960, and I’ve lived here for the last 25 years. My work background is in teaching and then industry. I’m now semi-retired, but still consult on medicine and food regulation, particularly for the Health Food Manufacturers’ Association, of which, latterly, I was Director and CEO and am now President. I love living in Langham, and have been involved with various Langham village committees/initiatives over the years, including WI secretary, Village Hall Trustee, Street Market organiser and Neighbourhood Plan member. As I have a bit more time now, I hope I can be useful to the Parish Council and the village.
