Hereford City Council is the Parish Council for the City of Hereford. Whilst we don’t have the responsibility for delivering large & complex services like schools, hospitals & highways to its residents, we play an important role in influencing others & acting as the voice of the people who live here.
Born in Hereford, I grew up in the Whitecross area of the City with my parents Ray and Sylvia and my two brothers Ashley and Jeremy. I attended Lord Scudamore Primary School, Lord Scudamore Junior School and finally, secondary education at Whitecross High School. I had a passion for physical activity and represented the school at various sports, including Athletics and Swimming.
A career in the Military beckoned and after a short period working at Sun Valley, in 1987 I joined the Royal Artillery and completed my basic training in Woolwich, London. My first posting was to 56 Special Weapons Battery, 39 Heavy Regiment in Sennelager, Germany. After serving in Germany and Cyprus, I volunteered to join the Commando Forces. On completing the All Arms Commando Course in June 1991 and earning the coveted Green Beret, I was posted to 29 Commando Regiment RA in Plymouth. I served with “two nine” for the remaining 20 years of my 23 year military career.

Hereford City Council has a limited budget to make discretionary community grants, from £50 up to a maximum of £3,000, to local community organisations, charities, clubs, societies and groups based in the Parish of Hereford City in any one financial year.
The awards are not just about groups Hereford City Council has awarded funding to, it’s about all the community and volunteer groups within the City of Hereford, who deliver projects and events to improve the lives of others and the environment within the City of Hereford.
