I am married to Philippa (Pip) and have two grown children, and more recently two young grandchildren.
We have been in the Fylde since 1985. I have worked in schools throughout my career until I retired in 2016.
We all love the Fylde, it is a great place to live with so much going on, and a wonderful place in which to raise a family.
I put myself forward for the Town Council to continue the good work they do, to help our town and the people in our town.
As well as being on the Fylde Council, I also serve on the Lowther Trust, to ensure we can retain a theatre in our borough.
I want to see good schools, a local health service that meets people’s needs, and services that are there when people need them.
I am happy to be contacted any time to try to assist anyone with problems.

Born and subsequently educated in Blackpool, I moved to St. Annes over forty years ago. My association with Ashton Ward is threefold. I spent over ten years as a Churchwarden of the Parish Church of St. Margaret of Antioch and have been, for some years, the Chairman of the Supporters of Ashton Gardens. I was also, for a while, the Chairman of the Ashton & St. Leonards Wards PACT.
When the St. Annes on the Sea Town Council was created as a civil parish in 2005, I represented Ashton ward and was the Vice-chairman of the original council.
Although having spent fourteen years employed in the world of finance I am, by trade, a joiner having had my own business in the town.
It is my sincere wish to help maintain St. Annes contrast with Blackpool, whilst encouraging the local commercial community and making St. Annes the destination of choice for the discerning visitor.

In addition to representing Fairhaven Ward on St. Anne’s on Sea Town Council I am also a Fylde Borough Councillor and sit on the Tourism and Leisure Committee.
Through these responsibilities – I recognise the important role that leisure and community plays in today’s society and that the role of accessible, high quality leisure provision can enhance the quality of life, health, and well-being of the local community.
Consequently, through my Chairmanship of St. Anne’s on the Sea’s Policy & Resources Committee; I can further leisure and community through the process to enable opportunities, developments, and structures to be put in place to inspire, support, and encourage all individuals to take part.
The way we organise our free time can reveal a great deal about our identities and ideology. St. Anne’s Town Council tries to explore what our leisure and community choices can tell us about the society in which we live.
We also want to see community leisure and development playing a more central role in supporting the involvement of communities, including young people, in the community planning process. In this regard my role strengthens the link between community leisure and development and community planning at all levels”.
I also do have outside interests which apart from of course my family and walking my dog; I am also Chair of Governors at Weeton School.

I have lived in St Anne’s on The Sea all of my life. My family of James, three children (Sonia, Rosemarie and David) and four grandchildren (Emma, Jack, Kurtis and Jordan) all live locally.

As well as being a wonderful seaside resort we have some beautiful green spaces in our lovely town, In Central Ward we have Beauclerk Gardens which is a lovely area which could be utilised much more than at present.
I am concerned about the number of empty shops (e.g. those on the Crescent) and would be interested in working towards attracting new business to the town. A particular interest is the St. Alban’s Road shopping area. This area has some lovely local shops, and restaurants and I would like to work towards promoting this area to locals and visitors to the town.
