STEPHEN represents the Herontye ward on the town council.

He has lived and worked in East Grinstead since 1995. Since leaving school he has been involved in tourism and set up his own travel company, Citrus Travel, in 2004. He hopes that his knowledge and expertise in this field can be of benefit to the town.

He’s a very keen sportsman with a passion for cycling, golf, walking and (for his sins) Fulham FC. Stephen is currently on the committee for the East Grinstead Cycling Forum.

‘My family and I love living in East Grinstead. It’s a wonderful town to have bought our first home and subsequently bring our two daughters up in. I hope that I can help make a real difference to the future of East Grinstead and it’s residents and businesses.’
