“Passionate about Dunstable, ready to listen, deliver and serve you”
I have lived in Dunstable West ward for over 14 years, and I am passionate about our town and working on local issues that matter to you most. I am committed to ensuring our residents receive the best value for money services and facilities available from the town council, making our area a great place to live and work in and enhancing all our lives in the process.
I have a keen interest in the history of our town which I am very proud of and a strong emphasis on community spirit, especially in supporting the wonderful events that are put on each year which are well attended, thoroughly enjoyed, and have such a positive impact on all our residents.
I am very enthusiastic to engage in our residents, to listen to your opinions and develop our town through community collaboration.
Whilst I can’t promise to fix everything, I can promise to be available to you, to listen to you, to serve you and do my best to get things done about matters that concern you the most.
Let’s all work together to make a difference, be progressive and have a town and community that works for you that we can all be proud of. Thank-you.

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.

I am keen to continue working collaboratively with Central Bedfordshire Council, our local businesses and voluntary and charitable organisations to maximise our town opportunities at all times.
