Peter has been a qualified football referee for 45 years and he has early memories of cycling out of town to referee Westerfield United when they played in Lower Road.

I’m married to Julian (Jules) and we moved to Westerfield, from Ipswich, in 2004. I’m not originally from the county, but having lived here for nearly nine years now I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Suffolk has everything that I am looking for in life; friendly people, great countryside, stunning beaches and lovely restaurants and pubs. Since moving to Westerfield we’ve had three children – within 13 months in fact ….. a little girl and twin boy and girl. There must be something in the Westerfield water! For 7 years I worked for the energy company, E.ON, in energy strategy but I finished with them last summer and I now love spending time with my family. I walk around the village – Jules runs and cycles!
