Area Board Air Quality Steering Group


I’m married to Melanie and have two grown up daughters who attended local schools. I’m an experienced senior manager of 30 years, working for some of Britain’s biggest brands.

My interests and hobbies are travel, music and gardening. I am also an enthusiastic fan of Newcastle United, cricket and F1.

Like many I am passionate about protecting our precious environment so a greener Devizes is something I’m very keen to support.

I passionately believe in equality and social justice, in recent years I’ve focused on community work; I am a volunteer and trustee of Devizes Opendoors helping vulnerable and homeless people.

Last year I co-founded the Devizes Covid19 Support Group and I am very proud to be the Lead of Love Devizes and develop its work and purpose.

I believe a local councillor should work hard for the good of the community and serve the residents by actively listening and responding to their concerns.

As a local councillor I am a team player who is always focused on getting the job done well and ensuring a community first outcome.


My aspirations are to help Devizes build on it’s historic heritage and ensure that the Town Council works hard to encourage local ethical employment by supporting local businesses, create a vibrant post pandemic town centre, promote a greener town with carefully thought out and costed planting schemes. I would work to ensure that the Council engages with other local groups to develop transport solutions to improve air quality. I will also ensure that the Council delivers excellent value for money.

I believe there is plenty to gain by working closely with Wiltshire Council to influence and therefore ensure Devizes gets the road and pavement investment it fully deserves, looking after motorists and encouraging more cycle users.

My focus will be to ensure that the Town Council has a clear and coherent voice and is completely relentless in getting the very best out of the county’s resources for Devizes.

As an individual I am energetic, have a positive can-do approach and value the importance of listening.

My whole career has been spent in leadership so I know the importance of engagement and teamwork.

I expect a local Council to be a hard working high performance team serving the community to deliver the very best solutions to see communities thrive.
