Committees & Roles
Portfolio Holder – Community SpeedWatch
Sutti was born in Roi Et, North Eastern Thailand and settled in the UK in 1986 aged 9. He spent his school years in the historic towns of Hastings and Battle before moving to London for further education.
Married to Dujdoa, they have 2 daughters Anissa and Ariya.
Sutti with his wife started a Thai restaurant in West London in 2004 where it is still operating. In 2014 the family moved from London to Lyndhurst, a place where they’ve have always loved, since they visited first time over 10 years ago and can now proudly call ‘Home’.
Sutti has now started another restaurant in the village and much of his time is taken up on this enterprise. Sutti interests includes current affairs, politics, history (Roman and English) food and wine, travelling and the outdoors
Although relatively new, as resident of the village, the family has been so welcomed by the people of Lyndhurst and the girls are enjoying the local schools and everything else the New Forest has to offer.
Sutti joined the Council in hope that he can contribute to keeping Lyndhurst a lovely place, to conserve but also look to the future.
