Chris Brattle grew up in Hertfordshire but came to St Albans in 2007 for work, very much liked what he saw and has lived here ever since. He is a regular in Bernard's Heath whether taking his 2 children skating at Pioneer or walking over to Little Star for a hot drink and some Cannoli (particularly the lemon ones). Chris has spent the last 15 years working in the world of international commerce, specialising in import, export and distribution. This has involved regular dealings with businesses of all sizes, giving him a strong awareness of the challenges facing independent retailers and the vital contribution they make to communities.
As a keen cyclist and parent he is keen to ensure safe routes for active travel, especially to and from schools and to carefully ensure that any development is carefully balanced with the needs of both the community and the natural environment. He also enjoys playing Bass (badly) and retains a keen interest in history.
