BiographyI first came to Torpoint in 1972 when drafted as Ship’s Company to HMS Raleigh. Soon after my wife and I felt that this was a place to plant our roots – a small town with fantastic beaches and coastline nearby, the moors not so far away and a City close but far enough away to be free of any “City Life”.
With the family settled, I was often away with the Royal Navy, then offshore world-wide in the Oil and Gas Industry. My last few years of working life again consisted of a great deal of travelling but only UK wide with Leonard Cheshire Disability. This UK wide travel brought home to me how lucky we are to live in such a fantastic place as Torpoint, definitely my forever home!
I joined the council in May 2013 and have served on all committees and most working parties – I believe the more you put in the more you get out. Sometimes it is frustrating but overall I sincerely believe Torpoint is moving ahead with a great future and a great team all working together for the good of the town.
