I am a retired Civil Servant who spent almost 38 years in the Department for Work and Pensions and its predecessors, including a 2 year secondment with the Audit Commission.
Following my retirement I spent a couple of years working as a volunteer for Cancer Research UK, in Stowmarket, managing the shop in the manager’s absence.
I am currently the Chair of a Community Interest Company which runs Cedars Park Community Centre and I also manage the centre.
I am a town councillor for the Stow Thorney Ward and a District Councillor for the Stowmarket North Ward and the current Deputy Mayor of Stowmarket.
My interests include reading, particularly military history and listening to classical music.
