Ryan has worked tirelessly for the Westham community since the age of about 14 to improve the community and the quality of life of the residents.
His life as a child has not been without its challenges and he has used his own experiences to help improve the lives of others. He currently chairs the local Westham community group and at the age of 18 stood as councillor for Westham. He spends his time, raising money e.g. imminent charity walk Weymouth to Bovington. He works with the elderly, the young and to improve the environment- organising litter picks, 'gardening' waste areas etc. He is an active member of Rotary and chairs the group planning the Christmas Sparkle event in the town centre.
