I have been an allotment tenant for over twenty years and have a plot on Bybrook Cemetery site.

At the time I took over the plot a lot of hard work was needed to bring the soil back to being suitable for growing crops as most new tenants will find .

I am interested in all aspects of allotment gardening and particularly enjoy growing vegetables with the greatest success being with leeks, onions and potatoes.

I became the site rep for Bybrook and after the resignation of Bob Stubbs I was elected Chair of the committee most recently being re elected in 2015.

When not gardening I am teaching science part time and training each year for a marathon as well as maintaining my Martial Arts black belt as well as other gym based activities.

I have several cats including two Bengals who need a lot of attention and three chickens .

I enjoy learning Botanical drawing classes and try to read widely .

I am mostly up at the trading store during opening hours if you want to make contact with me on any matter or you can.

I have had an allotment since July 2011 and in 2015 won best plot on Musgrove Farm and best plot in the borough.

I took early retirement from the N.H.S. 4 years ago, where I had spent 21 years as a maintenance electrician.

I am a volunteer at Willesborough Windmill, where I am the Miller and also carry out maintenance work to keep the mill complex working. At the moment Willesborough is the only fully working mill in Kent.

For about 5 months of the year I am kept busy at Christchurch Hall, where I am stage manager for ‘Ashford Panto’ and have the job of designing, building and painting the scenery and sets for the January pantomime. 2017 will be The Beauty & the Beast.

I run local web development and design company Warp Design. I have an allotment at Westrees where I like to spend as much time as possible when not building websites for people (it’s a great stress-reliever!). I believe everyone should have access to arable land and my goal is to eventually get the allotment productive enough to make our family self-sufficient in produce year-round.
