I moved to King’s Somborne in April 1987 having joined Stockbridge surgery as a partner at the start of that year. We have continued to live in the same house, which we have altered over the years, and I have been a local GP for over 30 years. Having retired from full time work I have been co-opted onto the Parish Council which has always been a goal of mine. I believe we should all help to support our communities in whatever way we can and I hope that my career in the area will give me useful insights in how to serve the Sombornes.
Whether it is in healthcare or local politics, we are living in difficult times financially and the Parish Council is an important vehicle for getting our voice heard and influencing things for our benefit so that we don’t lose out to the urban areas in terms of services and welfare.
