Having lived in St. Michael’s ward, with my wife and family, for most of my life I feel I know the ward and many of its people well.

 

Before retirement I was a departmental head at New College, Durham.  Apart from education – I am a director of the St. Aidan’s Catholic Academy trust and a governor of St. Aidan’s school – my main interest is transport.  I am a member of Railfuture, a founder member of the Conservative Transport Group and chair of the board of Compass Community Transport in the city.  I am also a trustee of the George Hudson’s charity.

 

Interests outside politics include travel, playing tennis, walking, watching football, reading,  theatre and cinema.

 

I am currently secretary of the Council’s Conservative Group of councillors.”

 

St. Michael's ward surgeries are suspended until further notice, in the meantime should you have any Ward issues I am contactable via email or telephone.
