Hello and welcome to my webpages. I represent the Ward of Castle Bolton, which is located in the middle of Wensleydale and extends from Bellerby to Carperby. Part of my ward, namely Carperby and Castle Bolton fall within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
I have been on Carperby Parish Council for over 25 years and was Chairman for 17 years, until 2009 when I did not stand for the position.
I have been a Member of the N.F.U for 40 years and have been on a number of Committees and Chair of the local branch.
I live in Carperby with my family. I have two children, a son that lives in London and a daughter that lives in Northallerton.
