This is my second spell as a Sunderland City Councillor, having really enjoyed working on behalf of the people of St Chad's Ward from 2007-11.

However my base for local politics in Sunderland has always been St Michael's, where I have lived for over 50 years and I was very pleased to get elected in May 2014 to serve the ward I know so well.

Locally I  attend the meetings of various Resident's Groups within St Michaels Ward, including  Ashmore, Ashbrooke and Thornholme, while I am also Chair of St Michael's Residents' Association.  In addition the Friends of Backhouse Park and Barley Mow Park meet regularly and I attend their meetings too. 

Professionally I was a Chartered Surveyor based in the north-east, so housing is my main interest. During my career I met thousands of people from all walks of life which was valuable experience for my current work as a Councillor.  Away from politics football has always been my main interest, seeing my first Sunderland game in 1959 and travelling throughout Scotland and Europe to watch professional football.  I am part of two history/heritage groups in Hendon and have been a member of the Royalty Theatre, Sunderland, for many years.  Since retiring I have been a volunteer for Age UK, Sunderland, in their "dial-a-driver" service.  

The next ward surgery is Tuesday 27 February 2018 between 11:30am -12:30pm at The Community Centre, Stannington Grove.

All ward residents are welcome and all ward councillors expect to be in attendance.
