I enjoy volunteering, mainly in and around the village of Great Bedwyn. My current activities are:

  • Active member of the Footpaths Group. This mainly involves clearing footpaths, erecting signs and mending stiles.

  • Active member of the Bedwyn Trains Passenger Group. Please see www.bedwyntrains.org.uk for details of our activities. Please also see the Rail Campaigning page.

  • I maintain the Croquet Club Pavilion and am working on a project to share the facility with the Youth Group.

  • I am a member of the 'Great Bedwyn Playingfield And Village Hall' committee.

  • I'm part of a campaign to get a monument to Charlie Chaplin constructed at the Elephant and Castle (near to his birthplace).

In the past:

  • I set up the first website for Great Bedwyn.

  • I co-organised two charity revues in the village hall. Raising money for the Tsunami appeal and UNICEF. 

  • I was involved in the campaign to bring broadband to the village.

  • Along with a small group of other villagers I was involved in successfully rescuing Great Bedwyn Post Office in 2008.

  • I restored the pumping station building at Wexcombe.

  • I was involved in an unsuccessful attempt to buy back the British Legion builing for the village. However, this project did uncover a piece of land that was successfully sold to a developer and raised £50,000 for our Village Hall. I underwrote the legal bills to ensure this sale went through.
