Steps, Trotton, GU31 5EP
020 3021 3383

I came to Trotton when I retired, after 8 years as an RAF pilot; 5 years at the Financial Times marketing department; 8 years at a FTSE 100 company, finally as director of corporate marketing, investor relations and strategy; 21 years as co-founder and director of an international investor relations consultancy.

As an "incomer" to the area, I wanted to make a contribution, so I do the parish clerk's job on a voluntary basis but I am also a governor of both Rogate and Rake primary schools, a director of START (Stedham, Trotton And Rogate Together) Community Trust and a volunteer driver of the Midhurst community bus.
