I am an Independent Councillor for Rural Noth Fylde Ward and I am not a member of any Political Party. As such, I only answer to the residents of my Ward, not a Party who tell me which way to vote.

I am a member of the Independent and Lib Dem Group at Fylde for administrative and Committee placement purposes which means I retain my independence and freedom to vote my conscience.  

I was born on the Fylde Coast and have lived in Singleton for 16 years.

I have had the honour of being the Fylde Borough Councillor for the Singleton and Greenhalgh Ward and now for the new Rural North Fylde Ward.

I am a member of both Singleton Parish Council (on which I have served since 2011) and Greenhalgh with Thistleton Parish Council (on which I have served since 2018).

I am actively involved in the community and I was the Chairman of the Singleton Village Hall Committee during its rebuilding and I remain a Trustee. I have also served my term as a Governor at Singleton C of E Primary School where my younger daughter still attends.

I was one of the founders of Radio Wave in Blackpool and for most of my life I have worked locally in technology.
