About Mike

My background

I live in the middle of Bishops Lydeard with my wife and three children. I have run my own business, focussing on energy and environmental management, for 10 years before which I worked for local authorities and industry in the areas of planning, waste and energy.

I am a qualified Town and Country Planner, Chartered Environmentalist as well as holding the current positions:-

  • Somerset County Councillor for the Lydeard Division, incorporating Bishops Lydeard, Cotford St Luke, Norton Fitzwarren, Lydeard St Lawrence & Tolland, West Bagborough, Triscombe, Ash Priors and Combe Florey;
  • Parish Councillor in Bishops Lydeard;
  • Chairman of the Neighbourhood Planning Committee;
  • Chairman of the Quantock Eco Cycle Path Committee;
  • Member of Quantock Eco
  • Member of Friends of Quantock
  • Active supporter of local businesses;

I also lead the organisation of the hugely popular annual event ‘Bishops Lydeard Party in the Park‘ along with Chris McKie.

In what time I have left after all that, I enjoy walking our Jack Russells in the fabulous local countryside, skittling, cycling, playing football and playing with my chidren.
