Giving the community a voice
I’m your Labour representative for the newly formed Bradwell ward, which now covers Bradwell, Heelands, Hodge Lea, Stacey Bushes and Two Mile Ash. I bring with me a wealth of knowledge and experience having been elected five times since 1983, most recently in 2014. I also served as Mayor of Milton Keynes from 1996-1997.
I moved to Two Mile Ash in 1981, and have lived here ever since. I’ve worked as an instructor, and then a lecturer, at the BT Training Centre in Bletchley Park.
My children were amongst the first to attend Two Mile Ash School, and I was appointed as one of its first Governors. I soon became Chairman, a position I held for nine years. The school established itself as one of the top performing middle schools in Milton Keynes. I was later appointed as the Chair of Governors at the new Shenley Brook End School, and again the school was rated as one of the best Comprehensive schools in Milton Keynes.
I am a former Chairman of Bradwell Abbey Parish Council, and am currently Vice-Chairman of Abbey Hill Parish Council. I am its longest serving member.
I have extensive experience as a councillor, and have previously chaired the Development Control Committee, Finance Committee and Standards Committee. I am currently Vice Chairman of the Licensing and Regulatory Committee, and also serve on the Development Control Committee.
As well as my service as a local councillor, I also have 30 years’ experience as a magistrate. I sat on the Buckinghamshire Advisory Panel for nine years, which involved interviewing new magistrates.
My many leisure interests include watching football and rugby, and I’m an avid collector of Subutteo football teams. I have also been a member of Mensa since 1976.
I believe in being part of the community. I’m committed to representing your needs, addressing issues that are important to you, and making this a great place to live.
I believe in being as accessible as possible, so I work hard to ensure that you are able to contact me easily. I’m an avid user of social media, and often receive my case work through these channels.
