Bob serves the ward of Crowthorne on the Bracknell Forest Borough Council and is a member of the Crowthorne Parish Council.
"As a resident of Crowthorne for 47 years; I have been an active participant in local village, church, school, scouting and community affairs.
For the past 22 years I have been a Councillor for both Bracknell Forest Council and Crowthorne Parish Council and currently the CPC Chairman. Throughout this time I have tried to ensure that Crowthorne maintains its unique identity and sense of place.
Recent Crowthorne and south Wokingham development proposals are substantial and potentially quite intrusive on our village way of life. As in the past, I am determined that any changes are harmonious and appropriately supported by the necessary infrastructure improvements.
I am keen to cooperate with and promote the various village stakeholder groups; including Buckler’s Park and Broadmoor together with the Crowthorne & Wokingham Without Parish Councils liaison group.
I have a strong desire to forge links throughout our village. This vision gave birth to the Crowthorne Eye Community Magazine 24 years ago. As Chairman throughout that time, I have enabled the voices of residents, organisations and businesses to be heard.
Further, as Business Champion for BFC, I am an advocate for local businesses and will continue to promote their needs throughout the Borough and in our Parish.
I have been a Board member of BF Homes (now Silva) and an Edgbarrow Governor both for 11 years; also, President of South Berkshire Scouts for 10 years.
Apart from my Council work, I am a choir member at St John's Church; enjoy reading, walking and photography."
