Committee Membership:

Quote: I moved to Croyde in 2007 as I believe the entire area is as good as it gets to bring up a young family. I was born in Plymouth and have never lost the desire to live by the sea, which is a passion no doubt shared by the majority of our community. I now have both time on my hands and commercial experience of which I believe will be of use to the Parish Council.

We have a community with many diverse interests, passions, and objectives all of which need to be understood to the best of my abilities.

Mike Taffinder

Parish Councillor / Appointed to check Croyde Play Park / Snow Warden

Phone: 01271 891222
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.
