Stephen took early retirement from a 35 year Civil Service career, his last post being Head of Customs at Stansted Airport. Stephen now devotes his energy to helping the local community. In his spare time, Stephen enjoys the gym (and is waiting keenly for Woodside to reopen!), cycling and swimming. Like many, he misses seeing his children and grandchildren who live in Somerset.
The Lib Dem values that mean the most to Stephen are...
Representing the community and standing up for residents to ensure everyone has an equal say.
Stephen enjoys living in Watford because...
It is a very welcoming town with access to great countryside.
For a bit of fun, when asked about his favourite food Stephen said...
I have a sweet tooth, so anything sweet, but I love Christmas pudding and fig roles.
