Getting on, but still young inside…(aren’t we all)!
Grew up in the town, attending North Blunts schools then Dene House Secondary before joining the Army in the Royal Corp of Signals. Served in various countries before injury curtailed my service.
Carried out a number of jobs since from HGV driver, call management supervisor to property agent / inspector. I have 2 grown up children and live in the Eden Hill area with my wife Angela whom I met 38 years ago by the Old Shell garage on a blind date!
Passionate about the town and the area, I have been a volunteer at Castle Eden Dene for a number of years before being asked to join the council after being very vocal on the main local social media page.
Founding member of The Wombles of Peterlee, I can be seen most days with a litter picker in my hand with my two dogs. Hopefully, people can see a difference however looking forward to getting more people involved and hopefully more kids.
