Aphra was brought up and lives in South West London. She studied economics at University College London and has a masters degree in Environmental Economics where she graduated top of her year. Aphra worked as an economic adviser for the Government in Defra for 10 years. She then went on to set up a veterinary business with her husband Ian. Together they founded and grew a successful veterinary practice in Surbiton which she says was great fun and hard work in equal measures.
A Conservative Councillor and active campaigner for the Conservative party, Aphra has been involved in politics since being a ‘junior member’ of her father’s campaign team up in Chester over 20 years ago.
Aphra says “I am delighted and honoured to have been selected as the Conservative Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Kingston and Surbiton. This is a fantastic community and I am proud and excited to fight for the Conservatives here.”
