I was born and brought up in this great part of West Sussex and was educated locally before going on to obtain academic qualifications in both Law and Ancient History & Archaeology. With my family home in the local area, I care about our community.

I have a proven track record of navigating local and central government whilst tackling issues concerning highways, schools, health and social care, crime, and the environment.
