Stephen was elected Deputy Mayor in May 2023 he had been a frequent visitor to friends living in Looe since the mid-1970s before he retired to live permanently here in 2018. His career included fourteen years as CEO of Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London and twenty leading the national charity Action for Blind People.
During his time in the visual impairment sector he worked to bring together charities with common purpose. He strongly believes that organisations that cooperate and communicate will always achieve more than those that don’t. All the same, he recognises that every organisation has its own valued heritage and each runs its business differently.
Stephen sees tremendous assets and opportunities in Looe – its fascinating history, the sea and the fishing industry, the woods, the rivers, the unique array of local shops, pubs and restaurants, its festivals and events, its visitors and above all its own local people.
He says: “I am honoured and thrilled to have been co-opted to Looe Town Council. The wealth of experience among the existing Councillors is awesome and I only hope that, in time, I can make a useful contribution”.
