I have been a Councillor since 1999 and am a former Chair and Vice Chair. I am currently a member of the Council's Traffic Group and represent the Council on the Riccall Playing Fields Association and the Selby Eastern Community Engagement Forum. I hold the position of Company Secretary of Riccall Regen 2000 and Riccall Regen Bar and have been Chair of Governors at both Riccall CP School and Barlby High School. Some years ago, I was responsible for establishing the Riccall Branch of the Workers' Educational Association and the Riccall Community Archive.

Born in Selby and educated at Read School, Drax (then the local grammar school), my working life was spent in the Department of Trade and Industry in both London and Leeds. I have lived in Riccall with my wife, Lynne, since 1988 and have two children, Dominic and Charlotte.

I have an interest in reading biographies, local history and geography and in most sports. I am a member of Yorkshire County Cricket Club, the MCC and a life long supporter of Selby Town AFC!
