What is the best thing about being a Parish Councillor?
“The challenge of getting a common-sense approach adopted to solve problems for the parish.”

What do you like most about living in Hoveton?
“Its location ‘twixt the city and the sea’ surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in Norfolk, or indeed England as a whole. What more could you want? For my part, I’ve enjoyed it for thirty plus years.”

What is the most challenging aspect of being a Parish Councillor?
“The twin challenges of persuading those in local government that they don’t always know best, and trying to persuade people in the parish that becoming a councillor WILL help to get things done.”
