Mob: 07976 001 280

I have lived in Sandiacre for 21 years and have served on Sandiacre Parish Council since the 2019 May elections. I am particularly interested in providing more facilities for local children and young people as I believe this would help alleviate problems with anti social behaviour.

I have recently retired from the teaching profession having taught in various primary schools in both Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. My last teaching post was working with children excluded from mainstream education and this is why I am particularly interested in engaging with young people.

I have been married for 35 years and have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. I enjoy spending time with my family and in my spare time enjoy swimming and walking as well as baking.
