Chris has lived in Witnesham for 36 years and is married with two grown up children. Both he and his wife Susan have been heavily involved in village affairs since they moved here. Their children both attended Witnesham Primary School and Chris served on the Witnesham School Governing body for 16 years. He was the founder of the WASPS football club in 1995 and has been a Parish Councillor since 1996, being elected as Chairman in 2013.
