I am married to Sue and we have one son. We have lived in Birch Vale for over 23 years. I am now retired but was the Works Electrical Engineer at Swizzels Matlow for 19+ years.
I was elected to the Borough Council in 2011, I was particularly pleased to have helped return our housing management to the council which released resources for improvements. I chair the Corporate Select Committee trying to hold this administration to account.
I am a chair of governors at Thornsett Primary School having been a governor for 15 years.
I chair the Arden Quarry Liaison committee. This has been a very trying time over the past years getting the company to comply with their regulatory duties. They do now seem to be completing the works to minimise the effects on our community. I will continue to demand improvements in their efforts along with the Environment Agency and other regulators
It was my privilege to be Mayor of High Peak 2014/5, and it has been great to meet and support so many people working hard for so many good causes around the borough.
