I was born, raised and educated in Mirfield and returned to live here in 2003 after over 30 yrs service in the Armed Forces and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. I have also been Chief Executive of three Chambers of Commerce and Industry and Director-General of an international educational charity. Currently, I teach part-time at Bradford University, where I gained a Master of Philosophy degree in 2007.
As Chair (and a trustee) of the Mirfield Community Partnership and Chair of the Mirfield History Society I am passionate that Mirfield retains its sense of identity; that and my distrust of 'professional' politicians (the product of a lifetime seeing the results of their incompetence!), led me to seek to become a local Councillor.
My hobbies are my three dogs, history, early music, folk music and - rather less actively these days - martial arts.
