Introductory information about Colin
"I was born in Redbourn and have lived here all of my life going to school in Harpenden and St Albans and then onto college.
After college I started and ran my own plumbing and heating company and have now retired with one of my sons taking over the family business.
I am married to Renee and we have three children and five grandchildren all living in the St Albans district.
I was elected as a parish councillor for Beaumont ward in 1999 and have been parish council chairman and now vice chairman. Also I am chair of the Commons and Green Spaces Committee and have been for number of years.
I reformed the Fireworks Committee in 2003 and we have had a fireworks evening in its present format since then.
I was elected as a district councillor in 2000 and was in that post until 2008 focusing on planning and of course Redbourn issues.
I have been a Governor at Redbourn Infants and Junior schools.
I was a committee member of the charity Hertfordshire Institute of Plumbing being chair and treasurer over the years.
I am a casual worker at St Albans Museums and have been for the last five years, and also at the moment a parish council representative for Redbourn Museum."
