I am currently the Chair of Governors at Alexandra Park Junior School and have been a school Governor for twenty years and Chair for the last six years. Before I came to Alexandra Park, I was a Governor at St. Agnes C.E. Primary School in Lees. In previous years, I have been the Group Scout Leader for the 10th Oldham Scout Group, a member of the Parochial Church Council and for several years sat on the Henshaw Educational Trust.

My current responsibility is Justice of the Peace for Greater Manchester, serving both on the adult and youth benches.

My other interests include being an Oldham Athletic Football Club supporter for 45 years and previously played football, cricket, badminton, tennis and squash (mostly poorly), but to taking part is the most important thing.

Alexandra Park Junior School is a warm and welcoming place and even after all these years, I still get that warm feeling when I come into this wonderful school. It is a very special place where children enjoy coming and are eager to learn, but Alex Park is so much more than that. It’s a community and a very vibrant one at that, with a terrific staff who focus on providing the best learning environment that they can. It is clear that the children enjoy their learning, thriving and growing to achieve their very best. It is a privilege for me to play a small part in the life of the school.

I believe that education is for life and that a broad education is an important start for a child. Not all children will be academic, but a broad education will help develop the child to become a well-rounded citizen with confidence, self esteem and will play an important part of our community.
