Ray represents the ward of Owlsmoor on the Bracknell Forest Borough Council.
"I was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne moving to Sandhurst in 1982. I am married with three grown up children who all went to Owlsmoor Primary school and then Sandhurst School.
I worked in IT for over 40 years and since retiring I walk my Irish Wolfhound twice a day in Shepherd Meadow, That must be one of the most beautiful walks in the south.
I am a passionate football follower and played for Camberley Town and Sandhurst Town. I am a qualified coach and coached Camberley Town, Sandhurst Town, Broadmoor Staff & Yateley Green football teams. I also coached and managed Sandhurst Town U18 team for 10 years.
I am a volunteer at the charity Sporting Memories who meet in the hall at the Church of the Immaculate Conception on Yorktown Road every Tuesday at 2pm. Sporting Memories helps people not just with dementia but anyone over 50 who would like to chat for a couple of hours about their memories.
I am also a trustee of the Sandhurst Day Centre.
I would like to see an early evening drop in facility for youngsters between the ages of 14-19, where they can meet for a soft drink, coffee or tea and chat and play music, without feeling any threat, or access to drugs and alcohol.
Sandhurst is a great place to live and I would like to make sure it is kept that way, remaining a safe and friendly environment for both young and old alike."
