Village Hall Management
I am married with two adult children and am a Chartered Engineer (Telecommunications specialist). I am past Chairman of the Parish Council and currently chair of finance sub-committee. I have been a member of the PC for some 10 years and have proactively pursued a number of initiatives during this period including improvements to the School House, instigating and developing the Parish Council web site, installation of solar panels and a new heating system for the village hall.
My wife and I have lived in High Legh since 1991. I have been Chairman of the Planning Committee on the Parish Council for many years and I always try to recommend to Borough Planners the best option for the benefit of the parish. I also carry out regular voluntary maintenance in the village like cutting the car park hedge. In 2005 I was awarded a Conservationist of the Year for creating new woodlands on the High Legh Estate, helped by Lord Grey the owner.

I am new to the Parish Council in March 2012 but was previously involved in the development and publication of the Parish Plan.
