Vic said: “I am proud to call Thetford my home. I feel Thetford has a really great sense of community and is a wonderful place to live and work. It has a lot more going for it then people give it credit for but it also has so much potential not being met. I aim to help unlock Thetford’s potential for the betterment of the whole community. I particularly would like to see our existing residential estates and communities better supported by the Town Council, including Barnham Cross Estate and Redcastle”.

Prior to his career as a Postman, Vic was in the Merchant Navy for 12 years, working up through the ranks from a galley boy, to second cook and baker. He travelled the world but left when he started a family.
