Additional Information

Liberal Democrat Member and Leader of the Independent Group.


I was born in Edinburgh and have lived in Faversham for 32 years.  I am married with three grown up children.  I attended Ashville College in Harrogate and Keble College at Oxford University.  I am currently a Director of a training company.  My hobbies and interests include photography, bird watching, grandchildren, conservation and reading.


I have been a Liberal Democrat for 40+ years, a Faversham Town Councillor from 1988 to 2004 (Mayor 1995-96) and Swale Borough Councillor from 1989 to 2000 and 2008.  I have been a member of SEEDA Regional Skills Productivity Alliance, Board Member of Association of Learning Providers (SE) and RSPB member.


Current issues in my Ward are development of Oare Road, traffic speed and parking, town centre not vibrant, vandalism, public safety and cuts in SBC services.  Good points about my Ward include 2000 fine people, Bysingwood gunpowder works, excellent primary school and Oare marshes.


All Members have a Localism Grant, which is a funding opportunity designed to support small-scale, local community projects. For more information and to download the application form please see our members-localism-grants page.
