Portfolios: Transport, Telecommunications, Burial Ground, Environmental Project, Shipton Fair
Having ‘semi’-retired from corporate life we moved from the home counties into our dream house with our two dogs, Oscar and Archie, a couple of years ago. My wife Jilly and I were married in the village last July and now feel very much at home having made loads of new friends and acquaintances. I have been very keen to participate in as much of Shipton life as possible and I was extensively involved in the organisation of the new look Village Fair last August. I am a bit of a sports nut, played a lot of rugby and have run 4 marathons. Today my love of sport is fulfilled in more of a watching, rather than playing capacity! However, I do still ski and scuba dive and am a qualified rugby referee. I play for the the cricket club and have recently joined the committee.
