Additional Information

Personal information


After retiring from working in hospitality with my wife, I decided to enter politics in 2005 and I have been a local authority Councillor for Glossop and Charlesworth since then.


My personal interests are the Royal British Legion and I am the Poppy Appeal co-ordinator for Glossop Dale. I am also President of the Glossop Mencap Group.

I enjoy dog walking and spending time with my family.


Reasons for becoming a Councillor


I became a local authority Councillor to represent the needs and views of the local community and work towards improving the local area. I am the LEA Governor at Charlesworth School in my electoral division.


I was chairman of the County Council for the year 2018/19 and I also Chair the High Peak and Hope Valley Community Rail Partnership for the County Council.
