Mid Sussex District Councillor - Cuckfield
Robert, originally from Yorkshire, established his links to Mid Sussex when he met Sarah in Pyecombe. They were married in the pretty little Norman church on the hill in the Downs where the three boys were also christened. Following a wide and varied career in management, the family settled in Cuckfield in 1989. During ten years on the Parish Council – five as Chairman - Robert fought hard to get a stronger voice for the parish communities of Mid Sussex.
A District councillor since 2009, he has served on many district committees which has given him a broad knowledge of local government. With a special interest in planning matters he, now serves as chairman of one of the two “Area” planning committees. Robert is a full time member of the Holy Trinity Church Choir, a keen large scale DIY man, goes clay pigeon shooting occasionally and admits to owning a set of golf clubs!
