Cabinet member for Transformation and Regeneration. Local Development Framework working party, and Gorleston Area committees.
I have lived in the Gorleston area since 1968 and worked in local high schools in Great Yarmouth and Gorleston until 2001. At this time I took early retirement to become Chair of the Great Yarmouth Primary Care Trust and following this, the Great Yarmouth and Waveney PCT on which I served until 2008.
I have a keen interest in working with community groups and have been fortunate to work in the Claydon Ward with Neighbourhood Boards, Residents and Tenants Groups and the Claydon Pavilion Association. My work as Ward Councillor has been to facilitate grants and produce real results for the local community. Evidence of this is on Southtown Common where the skateboard park, the football area and the fitness trail have been some of my major projects with the local community members and groups.
I am also a keen gardener under the direction of my wife Chris. But she only trusts me with the heavy lifting, the grass cutting and the bonfire.
