Matthew has been a Crowborough Town Councillor since 2010 and am was re-elected in May 2019's election.
As a family, we have lived in the town since 2007 and our three children are pupils at Beacon Academy, where I am also a Trustee.
I work locally and enjoy the fact that I can directly help people, whether as customers or employees. I feel that I genuinely contribute to our community through my work, and that extends to being a founding member of the Chamber of Commerce and trustee of the local Foodbank.
In my role as a councillor I am actively involved in committee activities, including chairing the Communications and Events Committee, which is responsible for organising our town’s major events. I am also Chairman of the Emergency Plan working group.
I thoroughly enjoy the opportunities I have to live and work in our wonderful town, for example I am a members of All Saints’ church, the tennis club and Crowborough Players.
