I was born in Rodborough in 1974 and I have lived around the Stroud Valleys for most of my life. I became a paid up member of the Liberal Democrats at the tender age of 16 after writing a letter to the ‘Liberal Club’ asking whether I was “too young too join?…”
I immediately got stuck in and promply signed up both of my parents! Liberal Democracy was relevant to me then as it is now. My belief in Freedom, Social and Envrionmental Justice and a Positive approach to International affairs drew me into public life.
I still live in the Stroud valleys having recently moved to central Nailworth.
