I have been married for 46 years with two sons and four grandsons since my sons were young.  I have been actively involved in the local community for many years; from helping to run play groups, parent and teacher associations, brownies and my local church.  In 1993 I was asked to sit on the Board of City Challenge and it was from then I became interested in local politics and the Labour Party.  I became a Magistrate in 1997and have progressed on to be a Chairman in the Adult Court and the Family Panel.

Since elected I have the position as chair person of the Licencing and vice chair person of the Regulatory Committees.  I sit as a member of Children and Young People Committee and the Standards Board.  On outside bodies I am a board member of Gentoo, trustee of the Charities Sunderland Old Boys School Fund and Impact.

I hold a Ward Surgery every second Tuesday of the month between 4.00 pm and 5.00 pm at Sunderland North Community Business Centre, Town End Farm and between 6.30 pm and 7.00 pm at Castletown Primary School, Castletown.
