Rob moved to Frome mid 2018, after retiring from working as a psychotherapist both in the NHS and privately. With a life-long concern for the environment he is particularly interested in supporting FTC’s declaration of a Climate and Ecological Emergency in Dec 2017. It is a priority for him to ensure the community achieves the resilience that a zero carbon footprint signals by reviewing the impact of what we buy and use as well as insulating our houses and moving to more carbon neutral forms of transport. As the Covid pandemic has shown, community resilience, i.e. neighbourliness, is fundamental to our ability to get through difficult times and consequently he is keen to support FTC’s initiatives to promote neighbourhood networks and anything else that brings people of the town together.
