I am now retired and have lived in Wylam for the last 30 years. I have a son at Ovingham Middle School . Most of my career was spent as a police officer where I was involved with multi agency working, interviewing, Youth Offending Programmes, strategic planning, crisis management, programme management, risk management and budget planning.
Post retirement I have been involved in many volunteer roles within the scouting movement and as a school governor. I have been on the governing body at Wylam First School and at Ovingham Middle School. As a governor I have undertaken many roles and responsibilities. I have been chair and vice chair as well as sitting on a number of committees including Staffing, Finance, and Performance. I have also implemented changes to school staffing structures.
My interests include walking, cycling, theme parks and holidaying in France.
