Head of Communities, Devon County Council


Devon County Council


My work responsibilities around the commissioning of key functions (including libraries, youth services and services to prevent domestic and sexual violence) community development, community safety and working with a number of vulnerable groups across Devon mean the work and learning from being part of the Board bring huge benefits to the Council, me and I hope Active Devon. I have a huge passion and interest in sport and the benefits of being active. In my spare time I co-ordinate the One Game One Community work at ECFC, coach girls rugby and am part of a small educational trust. I have two active daughters who play rugby and football for Crediton.


Appointed: January, 2016 | Board role(s): Devon County Council appointee


A keen sportsman, but blessed with modest talents, my sporting highlights include conceding two penalties to handballs in the same game and an unbeaten 16 not out at the County Ground at Taunton.
