Moving out of Norwich a number of years ago Josh and his family made their home in Hingham due to the great local services, environment and community.
He says “The Covid lockdowns really brought home to me what a wonderful place Hingham is. There is a wide range of facilities, some brilliliant shops and a wonderful community spirit which sustained us through some dark days.

He cares about people and knows his local area well and will be an effective community champion for local people.
Josh has the energy and drive to be a local Councillor. He says “My working life is all about service to the public. I know what needs to be done to ensure that local people have a person who can be the strong voice on their side. In my career I derive a great deal of personal satisfaction from helping those who come to me to solve their problems and I know I could do even more if you elect me as your representative.
“Local people need someone to stand up for them on the Council and, if elected, I know I’ll be in a position to get things sorted for local people in local villages.”
