I have lived in the rural community of Croxton, near Eccleshall for the best part of twenty five years having moved around the UK for much of my working life before that. Stafford Borough is one of the few places that has everything close to hand to live, work and grow contentedly. It also has some hidden treasures on its doorstep as well as some great transport connections.
It has been my privilege to represent Eccleshall area residents on Stafford Borough Council since 2011 and on Staffordshire County Council since 2017. During that time, I have been responsible for the Community portfolio since 2015 and worked with many public sector bodies and organisations to support individuals and communities in the Borough.
For ten years prior to joining the Borough Council, I was on Eccleshall Parish Council, including a stint of being deputy Chair of the Policy and Resources and Chair of the Traffic Management committees, during which time safety improvements were made to Newport Road and a zebra crossing was installed in Stafford Street. Whilst on the Parish Council, I fought to get the speed limit in Croxton reduced and the zone extended, whilst also secured a new children’s play area in the village with grant funding from various sources.
In the community, I am involved at various levels with a variety of community groups, particularly relating to sports and leisure and young people, including Eccleshall Eagles Junior Football Club, who have seen the investment of £1m in facilities at Eagles Park during that time and Eccleshall YoYo Youth Club. I have been involved previously with groups including the Eccleshall Show, Broughton and Croxton Fair, Broughton Parish Rooms, Eccleshall Football Club and Eccleshall Sports Group.
Further afield I am a member of Sport Stafford Borough, a governor at Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group and a trustee of Stafford United Charities.
