I have been a Town Councillor for 4 years, re-elected in 2018 and it has and continues to be an honour to represent the Town both locally and internationally. During my Mayoral year I attended over 110 events and learnt many new things about Knaresborough; learning that very much influences the work I undertake as a Councillor today. Married to Catherine, we have 3 Children and 4 Grandchildren, my interests revolve around transport themes being keen to support the protection of our motoring and motorcycle heritage. I’m now retired and devote many hours to supporting the Community, particularly work to support the Voluntary Sector in Knaresborough.

I moved to Knaresborough several years ago with my partner and we are proud to be now raising our two young children here.  A typical week for us includes visiting our town centre shops, a scoot round the castle grounds, and a trip to Knaresborough Library.  We don't own a car so you'll often see us walking around or using our great public transport.  My friend and I run the St John's Stay & Play playgroup and I am on the committee for Noah's Ark preschool.  Outside of community work I am a member of a local book group; I love gardening, and can often be found in our nearest bakery.
