I moved to Stevenage as a young child with my parents at the end of 1956, so have grown up with the Town. Firstly living in Longmeadow, then Marymead. I married in 1975, moved to Symonds Green, where I am still living.
I have two grown-up children, a daughter and son and a granddaughter.
I have been a member of the Stevenage Conservative Association since the mid 1970s and I have been a Stevenage Borough Councillor for the Woodfield Ward since 2000, having previously been a Councillor for the Symonds Green Ward for the years 1992-96.
During my time as a Councillor, I have served on many committees. I was The Mayor of Stevenage during 2018-19 and 2022-23.
Previously, for many years, I have been a School Governor for a total of three schools.
I am currently the Chairman of the Symonds Green Community Association, where I have been a member for many years.
I very much hope to be able to continue to serve the residents for the whole Stevenage to the best of my ability.
