Additional Information

I am a member of Oldham Met Borough Council.  I have worked for both Oldham LEA and Rochdale AFC and am now retired.

 

As part of my local councillor role I have had involvement in local planning issues.  I have also had considerable involvement in developing local community groups and liaising with local authorities.  I helped to develop a partnership agreement between Oldham MBC and the Peak District National Park Authority and support the provision of recreational opportunities whenever possible.

 

I recognise improving access to the National Park and preserving its natural beauty is an important balancing act which is sometimes difficult to maintain.

 

In my private capacity I am a member of the Ramblers Association and the RSPB.  I am also Vice President of Chadderton Historical Society.
