I have lived in the Coalville area for the past 40 years. I have represented the residents of Snibston Ward on the District Council for 16 years, five of these as portfolio holder for housing and fifteen years as a member of the planning committee.
I have also been a member of Coleorton Parish Council for 6 years, Swannington Parish Council for 8 years and has just completed 20 years as a Governor at All Saints School.
I am Chairperson of The Springboard Centre in Coalville and a Trustee of both The Grace Dieu Priory Trust and The Hugglescote, Ellistown and Snibston Project.
Up until my retirement I had spent 18 years working as the Maintenance Officer at Snibston Discovery Park and appreciate as a school governor what an important educational facility it is for our young people.
I have always been a visible and accountable councillor, accessible by phone and email.
