I moved to Fairfield in June 2007 and into a brand new house. Construction was still going on and I commuted to work in London. However I felt almost immediately that I had always lived on Fairfield.
Since then a lot has changed, I retired from my job in London and now work part time. The original Fairfield development was completed and the parish council was created.
I became involved in the Fairfield community early on, helping the campaign to form the parish council, and joining the Fairfield Park Residents Association committee. I was involved in Fairfield Matters newsletter from the start.
More recently I became a Friend of the Orchards and have taken part in their restoration, and have assisted in organising the very successful Fairfield Apple Day’s. This year I became Chairman of the FPRA.
I am concerned with the safety of the community and I am involved in running the Community Speed Watch group.
Fairfield is a unique and fantastic place to live, the community spirit is amazing and built up very quickly thanks to the energy of those involved. The parish council has been a driving force behind providing the Fairfield community with facilities and representing their views at the district council. Fairfield faces a lot of challenges both in the near future and going forward. If I am elected it is my aim to foster community cohesion and ensure that it remains a place where people want to live and raise their family.
