I am Leicester through and through and have lived in or around Whetstone since 1995 and am married with a daughter and three stepchildren.

Whetstone has grown a lot since moving here and I first joined the Parish Council during the planning process for the Hunter Road and Meteor Way estate.

I work full-time but also have a number of hobbies and interests. I help keep the village tidy by “wombling” and can often be seen in my hi vis picking litter, please do stop for a chat if you see me. Am an enthusiastic ornithologist and love being outdoors surrounded by nature and am keen to maintain the village green open spaces. I have also been a Season Ticket holder at Leicester Tigers since 1978.

This is my first year as Chairman of the Parish Council and will do my utmost to work for the benefit and enhancement of Whetstone.
