I was born in Barrow but have
spent most of my life in Dalton. I joined VSEL (now BAE Systems)
back in 1977 as an apprentice and have recently retired, my final
role was Senior Capability Manager –
I am skilled in a variety of disciplines and have a vast array of qualifications in Engineering, Life Cycle Management, Planning, Project Management, Metrology, Quality Control & Quality Assurance (Lead Auditor).
I have been married to Gill for 34 years and have two children Hollie & Josh, I also have three Grandchildren Mia, Sophie and Elena.
A past Director and Trustee of Dalton Community Association (Drill Hall) a project I was involved in over the last 10 years and was part of a team that secured in excess of £500k from charitable organisations and local funders. The money transformed what was a near derelict building into a community asset; we recently received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
I have been active in a number of
organisations including the A590 Theatre and Anne Hood awards.
I am a STEM Ambassador for local
schools and offer my time freely. I am
a Trustee of University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay and I am also a
member of Rotary Club of Furness and am currently President Elect
My hobbies include holidaying (cruising), walking, cycling and fundraising, I am happiest when I am doing something.
I enjoy raising money for charity and once took part in a Sponsored Cycle ride across Israel raising £3k.
My ethos is “IF YOU WANT TO EFFECT CHANGE YOU NEED TO BE PART OF IT”. To utilise a phrase from Henry Royce (Rolls Royce) – TO DO ANYTHING RIGHTLY IS NOBLE, hopefully this will focus me on my constituents in Roosecote.
I am Chairman of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee and a member of the Licensing Committee.
