Committee appointments

Additional Information

I served on Broxtowe Borough Council for 20 years from 1983 - 2003 holding senior position including Deputy Leader and committee chairman.  In 2005 I was elected to Nottinghamshire County Council where I continue to serve as the County Councillor for Nuthall having been responsible for Children and young People's Services during my time in office.

I was born in Bulwell and have always been involved in education, gaining a BSc (Hons) degree from the University of Strathclyde and a PGCE from Nottingham University.  I taught at a boys' grammar school in Rugby before moving back to Nottingham to work at Eastwood Comprehensive School and then Quarrydale School in Sutton-in-Ashfield where I was Assistant Head Teacher until 2005.  I am married to Jill, who is a Councillor at Broxtowe Borough Council and we have one son, Andrew who is a hospital doctor in Birmingham.

When not occupied in working for residents and on Council matters I act as a Chief Examiner for IGCSE and 'A' level qualifications.
