As a lifetime resident of Braintree District I am delighted to now be an elected Member of Braintree District Council for Bocking South, a ward I lived in between 2011 and 2016 with family ties pre and post-dating this.  I can even claim to be Braintree born, having been delivered at our former town maternity unit William Julian Courtauld Hospital!  I have lived at various locations around the District, growing up in Cressing where I attended the local primary school, going on to attend Alec Hunter High School and then Braintree Tertiary College.  I have a full-time career of some twenty year plus in the Insurance industry.
