For those who don’t know me or my background I currently live in Hardingstone in Northamptonshire however I was brought up in Mountsorrel in the Soar Valley .
I had been a member of Wellingborough Golf Club for 12 years up until 2014 when I switched to Harborough but have also been a member at Collingtree, Kibworth, Staverton and Kilworth Springs in the past.
I have spent my working life in design, from a 2.1 in graphic design at Loughborough College of Art and Design to working for various design agencies and in industry. This has taken me around the country from Leicester to Kettering, Peterborough, London and out to Sevenoaks which became One Oak while I was there thanks to the hurricane of 1987.
I ended up coming back to Northamptonshire in 1988 to start my own business, a design consultancy that has now been running for over 30 years. Some what of an achievement in what can be a very volatile industry.
Outside of work I have participated in various sports including football, tennis, squash and skiing (most of them badly!) and I am a lifelong Leicester City fan.
When I returned to Northamptonshire in the early 1990 I founded, and I’m still the chairman of the Leicester City Independent Supporters Association which concentrates on those supporters living outside of Leicestershire. We used to be a great source of information for all things Leicester City for those who didn’t receive a copy of the Leicester Mercury. That was until someone invented something called the internet!
My current handicap is 11 however as I’ve said on many occasions ‘Golf is the most frustrating game in the world and it’s being played by the person with the least amount of patience’
I hope to serve you all as well as I’m able during my year of tenure so please do let me know if you have any concerns or think I can help….just don’t do it just after I’ve missed an easy putt on the last to win the match!
My chosen charity for the year will be Marie Curie cancer care.
