Gary and his wife have lived in Uckfield for 22 years. His two children attended Rocks Park Primary School and Uckfield Community Technology College. Gary is a business owner in the care sector; he employs over 100 people in the local area.
Gary has always found it very rewarding to volunteer his time; previously being an army reservist and, more recently, as an active member of the Newhaven lifeboat crew.
I am aware of the value of the Village Hall to Ridgewood and the wider Uckfield community. I very much welcome the plans to rebuild the hall, especially with the number of houses being built in Ridgewood and the increased population. I will be delighted to support and work with the Village Hall Committee.
Little Horsted is an integral part of the new district council ward. I am aware that it has its own community with its own issues, including traffic and access issues in Horsted Pond Lane and the Owlsbury Park Suitable Alternative Natural Green Space (SANGS). If elected, I will listen to and work with Little Horsted Parish and its residents to help resolve any issues that I can.
Gary was elected district councillor for the new ward of Uckfield Ridgewood and Little Horsted in May 2019's local elections, and an Uckfield Town Councillor for the new West Ward.
