Councillor for Bobblestock Ward
I originally moved to Herefordshire in 1986 to run my own poultry business with my wife and two young children who I wanted to bring up in a safe, stable and friendly environment. 25 years on, I have never once regretted that decision. We first settled in Weobley and it was through my children that I first became involved in village life.
