Roger was born and brought up in Camborne and has lived most of his life here.

A caterer by trade, Roger served in the army as part of the 'Aldershot Cement Company' (Army catering corps) before moving on to cater for some of Cornwall's best know hotels, including the Greenbank in Falmouth and the Blue Haze in St. Ives

Roger and Nathan have made the regeneration of Camborne town centre their number one priority. Nathan said:

"I have spent the last serveral weeks knocking on almost every door in the Pendarves area of Camborne as well as Barripper and Penponds. What is absolutely clear is that people want a wider range of shops and more support for local businesses.

"A great place to start would be help with business rates. Although a whole range of discounts exist to help new businesses not enough is being done to promote them.

"No wonder Trelowarren Street is full of charity shops."

Roger, who is campaigning for the first half hour in Camborne's town centre car parks to be free to local residents said: "Nathan and I want to encourage people to be able to pop into the town centre to be able to use the local butchers or bakers without being saddled with parking charges. The cost to Cornwall Council will be very little but could make a huge difference to local traders."

The election was caused by the resignation of UKIP ccouncillor Harry Blakeley and will take place on Thursday 20th August.
