My home has been in Dunstable for the past 38 years.
Originally from Pembrokeshire and lived in Birmingham, London, Upminster and Wokingham. A Barrister by profession with some years’ experience as a Law lecturer and departmental administrator, I came to Dunstable to Head the Department of Business and Academic Studies at the then Dunstable College (now Central Bedfordshire College).
I served on Bedfordshire County Council between 1993-2009; Central Bedfordshire Council between 2009-2019 (Chairman 2010-2012) and Dunstable Town Council 2008 – present, serving as Mayor 2016-2017 and 2020-2021. I now chair the Finance and General Purposes Committee having previously chaired the Community Services Committee.
I have a keen interest in the history and development of our town, the services the Council provides and the many events it stages for all our residents.
It has been my recent privilege to contribute to a book ‘They Came to the Crossroads’ about the many people who have come to Dunstable over the centuries and made their mark on the town; to be available in November 2023.
