Rich lives just off Columbia Road with his young family and works for a national charity as a food & beverage manager. Through his experience as a manager in hospitality across charities, independent venues, and national operators - he has the organisational skills to get things done.

A keen supporter of road safety, Rich is establishing a community SpeedWatch along with ward colleague, Olivia.

He puts his catering skills to use as a committee member of Moordown St John’s Parents and Friends Association, cooking for events and helping to fundraise for the school.

He regularly attends the Wallisdown, Winton West and Ensbury Park Area Forum community meetings and has been supporting residents on a variety of local issues. 

Rich travels around the ward on foot, bike and car and regularly reports issues with bus stops, potholes & fly tipping amongst other things. He’s recently been campaigning for improvements to Slades Farm play park.

Rich loves the outdoors with his family, getting to Slades Farm as often as possible for walks and bike rides through the woodland and for his children to enjoy the environment. He bikes to work as much as he can and loves to watch sport when he can find the time.
