I have lived in Banbury 30 years, moving here to construct Cherwell Edge Golf Club for the Local Authority, I was a third generation Green Keeper and worked on golf courses for over 25 years.
Grass is my passion and always has been.
I started The Grassman some 21 years ago and have worked all over Banburyshire mowing grass to my hearts content.
I have been Married to Paula since 1989 and have two lovely teenage daughters.
I Have also play a part in local politics over the last 12 years, currently as Lead Member for Housing for Cherwell District Council and also a Banbury Town Councillor (past Mayor 2006) So life is pretty busy.
As my business grows I have added several people to the team, each bringing their own unique talents and skills to the team.
Hobbies: I enjoy watching Motor sport and if I get a chance to watch TV it would be Syfi or the Big Bang Theory. Will play golf a few times a year only if the sun is shining, I am also involved with many local charities and voluntary organisation.
I Have lived in Banbury all of my life. I originally went and study Forestry but when I left college I found myself trying to fill a gap while I was working out what to do next. An unexpected door open with the Grassman to join the team and 12 years on with a little break in between for me to pursue a role in a forestry opportunity I’m still here working with the Grassman.
I also have an active involvement working on a farm in the winter months when the season comes to a slow.
Hobbies: Tractors Vintage & Classic and more recently have taken up road cycling (Note I’m only a fair weather Cyclist) Other Likes: Listening to music, Food especially Cake, I also like to moan about the weather.
