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 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 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.
