I’m married with 3 grown up children and 5 grandchildren. I grew up and have lived in the Orpington area all my adult life and my family all live locally. My mother is a former Councillor for Crofton and Farnborough. After working as a fireman in the London Fire Brigade, I joined the P&O Group and eventually became a Director. In 2006 I took early retirement and have since worked for both National and local charities.
