Terence was born in Colchester and spent his first 10 years moving about with his family as his father was a soldier. After returning to Colchester he completed his secondary education and then worked on a building site for a year before joining the Army himself to fulfil an ambition to train as a Mechanical Engineer.
After 25 years’ service he left the Army having attained the rank of Warrant Officer 2nd Class and now works as an Engineering Operations Manager maintaining plant for wastewater sites.
His current role has given him an insight into the pollution that is sent out into our waterways and beaches by outdated infrastructure which is unable to cope with the increased number of houses connected to it. He wants water companies to be forced to reinvest their profits on equipment instead of just paying fines.
Terence has been married to Sharon for 32 years and they have 3 children and one grandson. They both enjoy going out on dog walks or riding their motorbikes around the County’s lanes, dodging the potholes and stopping off for refreshments along the way.
