I have lived in Dunsfold for the past 13 years.
I grew up in Leatherhead, which although larger than Dunsfold had very much of a community feel in those days and so I’ve always valued living somewhere with a good community spirit.
My wife and I have brought our two children up in Dunsfold, sending them both to the Chestnut Tree Nursery School when it was open and we’ve always supported the village and community, attending the fetes and firework nights as well as being members of the tennis club for a period of time and frequenting the shop and the pub.
Shortly after we moved to Dunsfold, I also became an on-call fire fighter for the local Dunsfold fire station and have done this for the past 13 years alongside my day job as a Managing Director of an insurance company.
I regularly take part in charity events, including a bike ride from London to Amsterdam for Alzheimer’s Society in memory of my father who passed away 5 years ago..
This closeknit community and becoming friends with neighbours and supporting each other is very close to my heart.
Outside of all this, you may have seen me on Master- chef last year where I became a quarter finalist and some of you may have even tasted my cooking as I’ve done a couple of nights down at The Sun.
I hope my love of Dunsfold and the community and my love to help and include everyone alongside my younger, fresher approach to things will help me to become an approachable parish Councillor that everyone can trust to take their thoughts/ideas on board and get things done
