Originally from the South of the County, and spent over a decade in outback Australia before returning to the UK in the early ‘90s. My wife, who grew up in the Village, and I were married in the Church here in 2001. We moved to Minal three years later, after living in Farnham and then Marlborough where I volunteered with ‘Tower and Town’. We now have three children, all at St John’s Academy. I previously worked in farming and then representing the industry to regulators and commercial trade associations, until three years ago. Since then I have been working for a technology business in Wiltshire as global lead on technical and regulatory engagements externally.
The future holds many challenges and opportunities for Minal, and the Parish Council, among other outstanding organisations here, holds a key place in helping the village thrive into that future.
