I’ve lived in Great Shelford since 1997. I run an IT consultancy. I used to do a lot of work for big financial sector clients based in the City (Stock Exchange, Schroders, Cazenove, Axa, Jupiter, etc.), but tired of the joys of the 0626 train from Shelford, so mostly now it’s supporting local domestic and business customers. My wife, Jackie, taught at Stapleford School for over 20 years before retiring in 2012. I have two children, one working in recruitment and the other with Surrey police.
I’m a VP of both the cricket and rugby clubs, but too rarely get to see any games.
I’m currently chair of the Parish Council.

I moved to Great Shelford in 2013 with my wife and three young daughters. I am a partner in the construction and engineering department of an East Anglian law firm. I was co-opted onto the Parish Council in the summer of 2016. I sit on the recreation ground and highways sub-committees. When I am not taking my children to or from swimming, gymnastics or ballet, my passion is participating in or watching sport, especially football, golf, cricket, running and the gym. I also enjoy a Saturday afternoon pint (or so) of real ale whilst watching Shelford Rugby Club.

I am currently priest-in-charge of Great Shelford & Stapleford and Rural Dean of Granta Deanery in the Ely Diocese, moving to take up this responsibility in June 2013. I was elected to serve on General Synod in 2015. Prior to my current post I was Vicar of Martin of Tours, Epsom (a busy town centre parish, with a large ministry team) for nearly thirteen years. I joined the parish council in 2013.
Born in Newmarket, Suffolk and ordained priest in 1982 in the RC church, I became an Anglican in 1987 and was welcomed into stipendiary ministry in the Church of England that year. I have served in urban, sub-urban and rural settings in Yorkshire and East Anglia.
I have a long held interest in community development and have served as a trustee on a number of charity and community projects. I served as a member of the church planning authority in the Guildford Diocese and currently serve on a national Church of England committee handling the disposal of redundant churches. I chair the houses committee in the Ely Diocese, looking after a portfolio of 163 clergy houses across Cambridgeshire and West Norfolk.
My hobbies include real ale (I have been a member of CAMRA since the late 1970’s), food and cookery, wine, photography, walking and gardening. I am also a travel addict and love France and most things French.

I moved to Great Shelford in 2014 with my wife and two children, and was co-opted onto the parish council later that year.
I worked for the NFU in Cambridgeshire and then for four years in Brussels. We moved to Dry Drayton on my return, where I was a member of the parish council until we came here.
I’m a self employed surveyor and consultant on European policy (and now on the implications of Brexit).
I can sometimes be seen walking my Jack Russell terrier Pippi around the village and on the Gogs.
I’m heavily involved in the Parish Council planning committee and development of the Stapleford and Great Shelford Neighbourhood Plan.
