Peter has lived in the constituency for more than 30 years, initially managing a small travel business. He has done voluntary work in the community since selling that business in 2002.
In that time he served on Gerrards Cross Parish Council for 8 years, including as chairman for 3 years at a tricky time while Tesco was building a supermarket. He was a member of the Independent Monitoring Board at Aylesbury Young Offenders’ Institution for 5 years and a local magistrate for 14 years, sitting in the adult criminal court and the family court.
Currently he is a member of the panel which hears parents’ appeals when Buckinghamshire schools refuse to admit pupils because of oversubscription or not being qualified under 11+ or other testing procedures.
Peter was the Liberal Democrat candidate for the Beaconsfield constituency in the 2005 and 2015 general elections. On both occasions he was able to use his wide experience of public service to answer voters’ questions and communicate Liberal Democrat values of an open, fair and tolerant society.
