I am a member of St Austell Town Council, elected in 2017, Before Cornwall went to a unitary structure I served as a Restormel Borough Councillor from 2003 – 2009, nd for four years was Leader of the Council.
I have lived in St Austell for 35 years and have been involved in various voluntary sector organisations and have campaigned on climate issues for many years.
Since 2012 I have been Chief Executive of Community Energy Plus, the Cornish charity tackling fuel poverty and promoting energy efficiency. I have been advocating for more support being made available for Town and Parish Councils to respond to the climate crisis and provision of practical assistance as Councils make Emergency declarations.
I joined the CALC Executive in December 2019.
