Personal Message:  

I am delighted to be given the opportunity to serve the people of Patching Hall for the next four years.

I will seek to improve the quality of life and sense of community within our ward and beyond, especially for the elderly and more vulnerable members of our society.

In partnership with my Conservative ward colleague, Jon De Vries, I can promise the people of Patching Hall a strong, productive voice at the very centre of Chelmsford’s highly successful Conservative administration.
