I was elected as a district councillor for the first time in September 2009, representing Yelvertoft Ward. I retired in 2005 due to my disability. Before that I was Head of the Department of Computing and Software Engineering at Coventry University. I also worked for 13 years as a Consultant to the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education in England.

I am very active within my local community, having served for over 20 years on the Parish Council with many years as its Chairman. I am also very active in the Parish Church, being a member of the Choir, the Parochial Church Council, the Deanery Synod and the Diocesan Synod. Since becoming disabled in 2005 I have helped to develop a number of support mechanisms for those similarly afflicted. I also organise the Telephone Helpline for the Farming Community Network, a Christian Charity which provides support to farming families throughout the UK.

My role as Strategic Planning Portfolio Holder champions the Council’s ongoing work to ensure that the growth and development of the District will continue to meet the needs and aspirations of the entire community. This is complemented by my service on the Planning and Licensing Committees.

My approach to being a district councillor is based upon the importance of honesty, integrity, justice and truth.

My priorities as a Councillor are to:

Fulfill my duties and responsibilities in a fair-minded and considered manner

Be available to listen to the concerns and interests of the community

Represent the interests and needs of the people of my Ward in an open and responsive manner

Promote the maintaining of services whilst keeping DDC’s Council Tax level low in a difficult financial climate
