Councillor Brighton Hill
I am proud to be your Local Councillor, and will do everything I can to represent the residents of Brighton Hill at Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and to make Brighton Hill be a great place to live and work.
I am one of three Labour Councillors working hard for Brighton Hill.
Below are my pledges to our great community.
The Leadership Our Town Needs Right Now
I have a long-established Basingstoke Family history. My grandparents lived in the old terraced houses in front of the station before they were moved to council housing when the houses were finally demolished.
I spent some of my childhood in exotic places like Kuwait when my father was in the army. Most of the time I grew up in Worting Road and went to Brookvale Primary School (before it got turned into expensive flats) and Cranbourne Comprehensive.
Like many Basingstoker’s I started my working life at the AA. I also spent some time working and living in Reading and London before finally returning to my Basingstoke roots about 30 years ago.
Much of my employment has been in public service, for the Legal Aid Board and Basingstoke College of Technology. I now have my own small training business.
As a committed union supporter, I have been chair of the Legal Aid ASTMS union group and am still a union member today, in the National Education Union.
