Additional Information

“I first become a Cheshire East Councillor in 2017 representing Bollington as an Independent Councillor. I was also a Councillor for Tytherington on Macclesfield Borough Council until its demise in 2009. 


I took early retirement 7 years ago, at the age of 50, after spending 30 years working behind the camera in the television news business. I spent a considerable amount of that time in many of the ‘hotspots’ around the world.


I have a private pilots licence and in 2014 directed and edited a full length feature film. A comedy-romance filmed exclusively in Bollington; cast members and crew were all volunteers.


I chair the Constitution Committee at Cheshire East Council and I am the deputy leader of the Independent Group. I am looking forward to my time on the Cheshire Fire Authority.”
