An experienced Publican with many Awards from CAMRA, The Good Pub Guide and Alistair Sawdays amongst others. I now volunteer my time within Pub Protection helping to fight Planning Applications, advising on Asset of Community Value Applications, attending Public Meetings around the country helping Communities to Save their Pub.
I have also advised a number of community owned pubs on operational matters and have invested in shares on numerous occasions since my First involvement in 2012.
Other than my passion for pubs I have a love of sport and have been a long-suffering supporter of Bristol City, Bristol Rugby and Gloucestershire CCC, although each club has had an upturn in fortunes in very recent years. My personal sporting endeavours these days are confined to daily trials of sock placement.
