District and County Councillors
Cllr Christopher Cushing
Ward: Lancaster North
Parish: Fakenham (North)
I was born in Fakenham and grew up and live in neighbouring Little Snoring. My family have been based in the area for many generations and I am proud of my Norfolk heritage.
I have spent my career at Aviva, formerly Norwich Union, in the Life and Pensions business. I am a qualified Project Manager and work in the IT division delivering change programmes.
My interests include having a passion for history, in which I have a degree. I also love gardening, watching cricket and walks in the country.
My principle aim as a District Councillor is to be a strong voice for Fakenham, represent the needs of residents and promote facilities, services and jobs for the town.
