Originally from South Manchester, which I left in 1966, my working life has been spent in banking based both in the UK and overseas. 30 years were with Barclays and the final 8 years with Chase Manhattan/JPMorgan all in a wide variety of roles.
Whilst in no ways an athlete I am a founder member of Wimborne Athletic Club and have been on the committee since 1984 – currently as Treasurer and Membership Secretary. Also I serve as Treasurer of Dorset County Athletics Association – a position I have held for 25 years.
My two adult sons and their families live in the Wimborne area and I am lucky enough to have three grandchildren.
I am also currently Chairman of Wimborne in Bloom and enjoy the support of a superb committee to provide funds for the floral display which adorn our lovely Town.
I have worked closely with WMTC and, more recently, the Wimborne BID to create an effective partnership for the benefit of all parties. I feel deeply about all aspects of our community and look forward to the challenges of being a Councillor and working with our residents.
