Hi, I’m Chris Antram and unlike many others here I have only been a Firle resident for 18 months (though my partner has lived here for many years).

In the short time I have been here I think it is fair to say I have fallen in love with Firle and felt that by joining the FCA Steering Committee I could contribute constructively and positively to the wellbeing and care of this wonderful place.

I’m a Chartered Mechanical Engineer, and hence hoping my skills and experience can help with any infrastructure issues within the village, one of which being the very exciting Firle Heating Project which will hopefully see many of our homes heated by environmentally friendly and efficient ground source heat pumps instead of oil.

My day job is as a Senior Project Engineer in London Underground, working on the Piccadilly Line Upgrade, but when not at work or engaged with the FCA I play the double bass for various orchestras including the Sussex Symphony Orchestra, as well as bass guitar when opportunities arise within the village.
