About me: I was a European academic (Munich and Mannheim universities) and Director (Athens, London, Milan) in a cross-cultural communications consultancy. Journalist and editor, English language magazine for diplomats and embassies in Athens.

Personal: have two children, one born in Germany the other in Africa. Three grandchildren, two, going through school locally. Have lived here for 11 years, and want to give back the good will and friendship shown to me in the villages, by working for them.

Local issues: the inevitable ones affecting villages, unacceptable development, parking, rat runs, speeding, ASB, no police, schools, public transport - and anything else that impinges on our rural lives

More widely: attempting to leave this planet in as good a shape as we can for our children, in terms of  tackling climate change and  creating a decent way of life. Doing what we can, on our own doorsteps, now.
