Tom was co-opted to the Board in April 2021; formal election will take place at our AGM later in the year.

Tom recently moved to St Mary's with his young family and works on a flower farm near his favourite beach, Porth Hellick.

Before moving to the islands, he worked on nature, climate and farming policy in the House of Commons and for several NGOs.

In his spare time, Tom enjoys watching sports from all around the world and still avidly follows his native Nottinghamshire in the cricket.
