I have lived in and around Storrington for over 40 years, having gone to school locally in Storrington and Steyning. On leaving university I worked in reinsurance, which I left when I had my first son to set up my own business as a freelance translator, which I still run now. I joined Sullington Parish Council in 1991, having always been interested in local issues, with a special interest in planning. I have been on the planning committee since my first meeting, when I left as Chairman of the committee! For many years I was Vice Chairman of the Council – first Sullington and then, after the merger, Storrington & Sullington. I took over as Chairman in 2011 and continue to be on all of the committees and am involved with Council matters on a daily basis.
I moved to Storrington with my Wife nearly four years ago having spent most of my life living in South London and working in the City. We found that we had very welcoming neighbours and in general Storrington was a great place to live in. After completing the renovation of our new home, I decided that I would try and put back something into our new community. Initially I became a member of the Speedwatch Group, who do an excellent job in educating motorists as they pass through the village. Following the request by the Parish Council for volunteers, I decided to apply and here I am! It is important that Storrington remains the special place that it is and I will try my best to help.
I moved from Brighton to Storrington with my partner and son in 2014 and we quickly discovered we had found a wonderful place to bring up a family., Whilst the village is thriving and busy, people still take time to talk to each other in shops and streets - such a contrast to city-life. The next year, I became a Parish Councillor because I hoped there might be something I could do to help Storrington & Sullington continue to grow while holding on to all the great things we have come to appreciate about it. My work is in research, international development and digital marketing and if you keep your eyes open, you might spot me at work in my office on West Street.
I have lived in and around Storrington for just over 30 years. I have three young sons and have always shown great interest in local community matters. Storrington is a great place to bring up a family and I feel honoured to be serving on the local council and feel I have a lot to contribute. If I get any spare time, I enjoy long dog walks and curling up with a good book!
I moved to Storrington in 1987 in one of many moves in a career in metals and plastics packaging manufacture here and abroad. And stayed. I’ve been a member of the Parish Council on and off since the late 1990's, serving on, sometimes chairing various committees, and a spell as council vice chairman. I’ve also enjoyed around 20 years working with the Community Minibus.
Having previously lived in Horsham for 31 years, after our two children moved into their own homes my wife and I moved to Sullington in 2009. I really enjoy the village life and community atmosphere and when I had the opportunity to join the Parish Council I was very pleased to do so. I am on the Infrastructure, Communications & Environment Committee and the Recreation and Property Committee and am a Trustee of Sandgate Conservation Society supporting the aspirations of the community for the eventual formation of Sandgate Country Park.
I have lived and worked at Sullington Manor Farm, a beef and arable farm next to Sullington church, for 25 years where we brought up our two daughters. The South Downs are an important asset for Storrington and Sullington Parish and for Horsham District and every year we are delighted to welcome over 800 visitors from all over the world to stay in our cottages. We have recently revitalised the ancient barns of the medieval farmstead in response to an increased interest in the history of Sullington and greater leisure use of the South Downs. I have a background in business including time as Operations Director at the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum. I have worked full time in our own business for over 10 years. I am eager to participate fully in community life and take an active part in the community of St Mary's Church, Sullington. I am a member of Sandgate Conservation Society and the Storrington area committee for Family Support Work, a charity which exists to help and support families in difficulty in our local area. I joined the hard-working Parish Council in 2014 to help ensure that Storrington continues to be a thriving, enjoyable and co-operative place to live and work.
I recently moved to Storrington, having spend the last 25 years living around Brighton & Hove. I felt immediately at home within the village and wished I'd moved sooner. My partner is Filipino, we have been together for 5 years and he works on cruise ships in the casino. I am a bus driver for a local firm based in Billingshurst, mainly working the Horsham school routes, as well as being Health & Safety Director for Cycling Support Services Ltd. This is a not for profit local business, we design and put on bike rides for charities to raise much needed funds. Most of these rides are based around London and beyond. I am the founder and Chair of Proud Seagulls, the LGBTQ+ & Allies fan group for Brighton & Hove Albion, as well as being a season ticket holder. I am also Chair of the Royal Army Medical Corps Association - Sussex, Branch as well as a public member of several Sussex Police Independent Advisory Groups, namely West Sussex, Horsham LGBT Diversity and Stop & Search. I wanted to be on the Parish Council so I could have a more active input into the area and to preserve the uniqueness of Storrington & Sullington.

My wife and I moved to Storrington in November 2012. We thoroughly enjoy the beautiful countryside that surrounds us, walking, cycling and fishing locally we fully embrace village life. My main career was as a Police Officer with the Metropolitan Police service. I have also been a service engineer with British Gas and a hospital porter. I have helped on some Storrington Conservation Society working parties and currently volunteer at RSPB Pulborough Brooks 2 days a week. I am honoured to have been recently accepted on to the Parish Council and will be working hard to help protect and improve the environment we all enjoy in Storrington.
My wife and I spent the early years of our married life in Burgh Heath, Surrey and moved to the outskirts of Washington 26 years ago as a result of office relocation to Hove. Prior to retiring, I joined Washington Parish Council and served on the Planning and Finance Committees which I found interesting and rewarding. I left the Council following a move to West Chiltington but more recently we have moved to the heart of Storrington. I look forward to being able to contribute to helping to maintain our environment andcontribute to the well being of our village.
