My career was mainly as a university lecturer in Malawi, then Exeter, and at SeaIe-Hayne College of Agriculture. My subject areas were countryside management and ecology. I also ran a farm on Dartmoor for 30 years. However I was born and at school in Croyde and locally, and was very often in the village as my parents remained here. I returned to live full time in my childhood home when I retired in 2006. I am now a parish councillor, as my father was before me, ready to listen to and represent parishioners’ views so please get in touch especially about landscape and environment.

Address: Gibbs, North Buckland, Braunton, EX33 1HY
Quote: My wife and I moved to North Devon from Gloucestershire in 2002. I spent 32 years in the Royal Marines from 1961 to 1993, my last appointment being in command of the Commando Training Centre near Exeter for 3 years. On retirement from the military I worked for 5 years for King George’s Fund for Sailors (now Seafarers UK), a nautical charity raising money to help those in need who earn their living at sea. In the late 90s I changed direction and began to work for myself as a woodcraftsman; that was 18 years ago and I continue to run Mike Taffinder Woodcrafts, operating out of North Buckland.

I greatly enjoy living in this part of North Devon and am keen to do my bit to keep the area looking good.
