I have lived in Great Yarmouth since 1971. I worked at St Nicholas Hospital as a Nursing Assistant for two years. I then joined Norfolk Fire Service as a fire-fighter and served 30 years, 10 years of which was in Gorleston and 20 years in Great Yarmouth. It was a pleasure to do such a worthwhile job. I retired in 2004. I am the project manager at a local charity called First Move Furnishaid. The charity helps the unemployed, unwaged and people on low incomes in Great Yarmouth. Our motto is “A Local Charity for Local People. “ I became a councillor after a by-election was called following the death of the then councillor Harry Miller, which took place in 1986. I have been proud to represent Nelson ward ever since.
