Term of Office
I do not hold regular surgeries, but I am available to be contacted via the details above at any reasonable time.
Regsister of Interests
I am the Councillor for the ward of Gilling West, the beautiful, rural area south of the A66 with its villages of Gilling West, Ravensworth, Gayles, Whashton and Kirby Hill; settlements at Aske and Sedbury.
I have lived and worked in Sedbury all my life; as have my ancestors. I have deep roots in the Ward, involved in farming the land there.
I was elected to the Council in November 2006 in a by-election. The work of a Councillor has opened my life to new challenges and acquaintances.
The farming of beef cattle has a fascination that can be all consuming but I make time for other interets such as church, community work, love of walking, history and literature but people are very important.
Events and Surgeries
I do not hold regular surgeries, but I am available to be contacted by telephone and e-mail at any reasonable time with any concerns.
