I was ordained in June 2014 as Ordained Local Minister, which means that my ministry will remain ‘local’, in the Mease Valley.
I retired in 2009 after working as a Chartered Stuctural Engineer, the final 7 years being spent in Hong Kong and The United Arab Emirates as Regional Managing Director.
Originally from Coalville, I have lived in Chilcote since 1996 and have been married to Jackie since 1966. We have daughters Nicola and Caroline and grandchildren Charlie, Erin and Callum.
I am a lifelong fan of Leicester City and of most sports, mainly as a spectator these days apart from an occasional round of golf.
I am keen to see the Church assume a greater relevance in the lives of those who live in our villages, particularly the men.
