Doug was elected for the first time in May 2023. He lives on the Cloverfield estate with his family.
Doug said: “Since moving to Thetford in 2020 I have been delighted to call it my home. I have taken great joy in exploring the forest with my dog and discovering the town with my two young daughters. Thetford has all the ingredients to be one of the most special places in the UK to live, beautiful landscapes, natural scenery, a small market town with heritage, unique stories and culture down every street and in every ward. However at this moment in time I think it is being underserved and not fulfilling its potential. I want to change that. I want to make Thetford an example for other small market towns to follow by building a thriving economy, ensuring local business is encouraged and supported, maximising value from our council budget and providing facilities and events for all to benefit.”
Doug says that he is incredibly proud and grateful to be representing residents on Thetford Town Council and looks forward to the challenging and exciting work. As a father to two young daughters Doug is passionate about making the town of Thetford a thriving and exciting place to live.
Doug is Vice Chairman of the Venues & Communications Committee as well as being a member of Amenities and Planning.
