About Me

Local lad, born in Offord, unexpectedly, two months early and weighing 2lbs. Eldest of three boys. Lived in Graveley then Fenstanton before moving to Stilton in 1975 when I married Jackie and we set up our first home in Worthington Close.

Stilton was chosen as we could afford to buy a house as opposed to other locations such as Fenstanton, where we both lived. The choice turned out to be a great move as the village and the people made it a special place to live and raise a family.

We had three children Jason in 77, Alison in 79 and Adam in 81, all attending the local schools and joining groups that were available to them at the time.

I am now a retired Civil Servant having done forty seven and a half years service all of which were on UK and US military bases.

I joined the Parish Council to give something back to the village and thrive to make it a place where all that live here can enjoy and feel proud of. I would encourage others to do the same.
