F Hockin Parish Councillor
Fred Hockin 01840 250529    Chair  Email

I have lived in Boscastle for the last six years and before that in Warbstow where my son and two grandchildren still live. During my time there, I was also a District Councillor and a District Councillor for the Ottery Ward for six and half years serving as Vice Chairman of the planning committee.
I worked for UPS in Bodmin and in my spare time enjoy watching Boscastle football team.
I am keen that there should be no major changes in Boscastle and that inappropriate development should be avoided.
