As a member of Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club the local community is always at the front of my mind. Coming up with ideas on how to improve the local area, fundraising for local causes and volunteering my time to improve the lives of others. When the chance to join the festival committee came about I couldn't refuse. I’m proud to head up the team that pulls together such a big community event that does so much to support so many local groups and organisations and gives the opportunity for local up and coming musicians to perform. It is brilliant to be able to support this amazing, free and fantastically fun town event.
I have lived in Maidenhead all my life and through my job as Town Manager have got involved with loads of great community events and got to know lots of people who are doing amazing things for the town in their own time. The Festival Committee works tirelessly throughout the year to make sure the town has it’s own community Festival that’s free for everyone to enjoy. We hope you have a great time at this year’s event and spread the word to everyone to come and join us.
I’ve been involved with the festival almost since it began and am a former chairman of the event in its previous incarnation as Maidenhead Carnival.
For my day job I’m the Editor of the Maidenhead Advertiser, where I’ve worked for the best part of three decades, but I’m also involved in lots of other community organisations such as Rotary and the Talking Newspaper Association.
Maidenhead Festival is a fantastic event that brings enjoyment to so many people and is a brilliant thing to be involved in.
My day job as Manager of The Nicholsons Centre puts me at the heart of the community and what a fantastic community we have in Maidenhead!
The annual Festival is such a fabulous event and I am delighted to be part of a great committee that works all year to deliver this amazing free event for those who live, work and visit our town to enjoy.
See you in July!
