Personal
I live in Winslow with my wife, Kay.  We have five children and five grandchildren; the grandchildren range from two to fourteen years old.  They take quite a lot of time and energy.   I also enjoy cycling; I am a member of a cycling club.  I have an allotment and go bird watching.  I have a degree in Philosophy, I am very keen on critical thinking and logical approaches to problem-solving.

Professional
I am a Social Worker by profession, I managed Child Care and Child Protection Teams, chaired Safeguarding Conferences and Looked After Children reviews and have been part of Education, Care and Health Planning for young people. I was also an Approved Mental Health professional involved in assessments of adults and young people

Why be a governor?
I am now retired but want to stay involved.  I want high quality, safe education for all young people in Buckingham and its surrounding area.  For some young people school can be part of the problem or part of the solution, I would like to help make it more often part of the solution.
