Originally from Worcestershire, I have lived in Horley for thirty years. I am a Chartered Materials Engineer with a firm of consulting engineers managing their construction materials laboratory in London. I am married to Sue. Our two children went to Horley Infant School in the 1990's - both are now working in London (but still living at home!).
I was treasurer of the Friends at Horley Infant School for five years, and have been a Governor for the past seventeen years, initially as a Parent Governor and now as a Co-Opted Governor. I have been Chairman of the Finance Committee for several years and am also currently Vice Chairman of the Governing Body. I was also chair of the Horley Learning Partnership Finance Committee before it was disbanded in the restructuring of HLP.
Away from school (and work) I relax by reading and gardening and am a keen member of the Geograph Project. I also follow the fortunes of Kidderminster Harriers FC.
