I was born in Bradford,West Yorkshire but moved to Leicestershire early in my life. My first employment was with the Post Office (behind the counter) but I later joined Leicestershire Police and spent 21 years serving the community before being retired following a back injury.

I am married to Chris and we have two children Alan lives in Darlington, he is a retired army musician and now works in Northallerton. Anne lives in Riccall and is a teaching assistant employed by Yorkshire Education. We moved to Riccall in 2003 to run The Greyhound and have enjoyed living in this wonderful, friendly village so much that when we left the pub in 2007 we decided to stay in Riccall.

I enjoy watching sport, mainly rugby, snooker, darts and cricket, doing crosswords and listening to music (military, big band, choral). I used to sing in my church choir and in a small male voice choir, I am a member of Riccall Methodist Church.

I am a member of Riccall snow patrol and have previously been the lead co-ordinator for this group. I was honoured to be co-opted onto Riccall Parish Council in 2012 and will be endeavouring to put something back into the community.
