More recently he has moved on to become an Environmental Health advisor in order to assist and support numerous small businesses throughout London and the Home Counties with health and safety issues. Throughout his working life,

James has worked with the public and feels that by becoming a District Councillor he will be able to continue to serve the community and be the powerful voice that is seen to be on their side..

He enjoys a game of golf, restoring classic cars as well as maintaining his home and garden. James has the enthusiasm, energy and commitment required to be a District Councillor. He cares about people and knows his local area well and will be an effective community champion for local people.

He says “Local people need someone to stand up for them on the local Council and, if elected, I hope to be in a position to get things sorted for local people in local villages.” “I derive a great deal of personal satisfaction from helping those who come to me to solve their problems and I hope that you will support me at the polls
