I have lived in Carterton since birth and my family have lived here since 1952. I have seen many changes over these years. I enjoy living in this part of West Oxfordshire and also on the doorstep of the Cotswolds.
I operate my haulage business from Carterton in the local construction industry and spend my leisure time taking my family to various truck shows across the country and beyond; I also love to travel and experience the wider world.
I became a Councillor as a result of my son and his friends, who enjoy using the Skatepark on Upavon Way, being worried what would happen when this was due to be removed. After contacting the Town Hall and with some advice from the Mayor, I decided to run for a position on Carterton Town Council. When the new skatepark opened in 2017 this made it all worthwhile for me to see so many children, teenagers and adults enjoying the new park.
Carterton is an ever changing and growing town with the large RAF base and should be following this with upgraded infrastructure and redeveloped Town Centre and surrounding areas to include leisure activities and new business creating employment and making Carterton even more of an attraction to live in as the residents deserve.
