Additional Information

About Me


Lifelong resident of the PDNP, caring passionately about its preservation, heritage, beauty and the welfare of its residents, especially our young people needing homes and improving facilities for tourists.


I am the longest serving member (26+ years) on the NP having served on all main committees, many panels/advisory groups. My attendance records/participation in discussions is exemplary and would stand scrutiny.


My local support being a Rowsley PC Councillor, representing councils on various outside meetings, attending up to 3 PC meetings per week, advising as appropriate, constructive networking with other PC’s & liaising with the police.


Greatest concern is affordable housing for the younger generation, environment friendly quarrying, renewable energy sources, farming and protecting the treasured NP landscape and beyond. I continue to further reduce my own carbon footprint.


Importantly, I listen to what other people say and help where I can


Membership of outside bodies


In a personal capacity, I am a member of:



Friends of the Peak District/Campaign for the Protection of Rural England

Christian Ecology Link (CEL)
