Appointments to outside bodies
I was born in Whitstable, educated in
Canterbury and subsequently obtained teaching qualifications from
the Universities of London and Quebec. I began my teaching career
in 1959 and spent thirty-six years in my chosen profession,
teaching in the London Borough of Hayes, Montreal, Canada and in
Kent, retiring from my position of Deputy Head at Herne Bay Junior
School in 1995. My service in local government started in 1976 as
one of the elected members for Swalecliffe and I now serve as
Councillor for Chestfield. During my time as a member of Canterbury
City Council I have served on most of its committees and chaired
the Housing and Environment, Health and Policy Scrutiny Committees.
I served as Lord Mayor for 2 years, from 1999 to 2001.
