I grew up on a farm in South Devon and studied at agricultural college before spending seven years working as a commodity trader out in Spain, and the USA.  On our return, my wife and I lived in London for a few years before moving to West Sussex in 2012.  I work in Chichester for Bartholomews Agri-Food, while Fran is a Biology teacher at a local secondary school.  We have two children who both attend the village primary school.

I have also been involved as a rugby coach for Midhurst RFC since 2012 and we hold family membership of the Stedham Sports Association.  I was encouraged to join the Parish Council in January 2017 and I hope to contribute wherever possible.

John Wheelhouse

Born in Whitby North Yorkshire just before the Second World War, I read Architecture at Sheffield University graduating in 1961.

I entered the Architecture Department of Sheffield City Council and moved around several other Councils until leaving  local government in 1991 after seven years as Cambridge City Architect.  I was responsible for the construction and renovation of a wide range of public buildings and housing.

I set up my own practice specialising on the design and project management of large scale private development in London and Cambridge until retiring five years ago.  During this period I handled evidence with regard to Local Plan preparation, sect 106 agreements and planning inquiries.

Following retirement, I served on the Parish Council in my last village primarily with responsibility for individual and larger scale housing applications.

I moved to Stedham in 2014 with my wife, Chris, in order to be more accessible to the grandchildren.  A former keen cricketer, I play golf and enjoy watching rugby when the demands of the garden allow.

Responsibilities: Chairman of the Planning Committee, Finance & General Purposes Committee member, Environment & Amenities Committee member.
