Graham Winter, Labour’s Parliamentary candidate for Camborne & Redruth in the 2017 general election
Graham was born in Barnsley and grew up in Hemel Hempstead, where his father was a shopkeeper. He moved to Bristol in his early 20s to take up a job in IT. As a mature student, Graham’s passion for the environment led him to gain a first class honours degree in Environmental Science from UWE in 1998 and since then has worked for the Environment Agency where he is currently Senior Advisor in Waste Management. He travels the country meeting key people in business and industry.
He moved from Bristol to Camborne in 2005 with his family. His children have both attend school in Camborne.
He has been a Town Councillor for Camborne Roskear since May 2015 and is a member of Camborne’s Trevithick Day Committee (you may have seen him putting up signs or selling programmes on Trevithick Day). He was formerly a Trustee of the Donald Thomas Centre in Camborne and a member of St. John’s School PTA, instigating their annual Christmas craft fairs. He is a keen amateur actor and can often be seen trading the boards with St Agnes Theatre Players.
