Address
Mill Lane, Trotton

I have been a resident of Trotton for 25 years and am now retired.

I worked for thirty five years of my career in the Motorsport Industry, for twenty five of those years I ran my own business restoring and race preparing 50s, 60s.and 70s era sports, single seater and touring cars.

Fifteen years ago I trained to be Lecturer and then lectured in Automotive Studies at Southdowns College.

Since retiring I have become a volunteer driver for My Bus. I also work as a volunteer teacher for Skillways which is a charity that supports young people, struggling in mainstream education, to gain vocational skills and knowledge in order to enhance their transition into work.

I am a bell ringer at both Stedham and Milland churches, coming from a bellringing family. I am married with adult children and two grandchildren.
