My family moved to Rutland in 1997 settling in Oakham before moving to Langham in 2018 after our 2 children had flown the nest.

I am a company director, working in Corby, and my background is in engineering and manufacturing management in large companies before establishing a small specialist metal finishing company.

I am passionate about Langham and hope to play my part in making it a great place to live and play and a community to be proud of.

PC Vice Chairman

Committees: Communications - Planning (Lead) - Parish Forum (Lead)

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.
