Appointments to outside bodies
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.
