Introduction: I joined the governing body in November 2013 as I feel it is important to give something back to the community. I have recently retired from Rochdale Borough Council after almost 36 years in the Property and Highways Service, where I dealt with everything from potholes to winter gritting.
I enjoy serving the public and that is the main reason I became a Governor. I want to ensure that the school gives our children the best opportunities in life and that it continues to strive to be outstanding. I was President of the Rotary Club of Rochdale in 2014/15 and I am also heavily involved with fundraising for the NSPCC Childline. This normally involves trekking up snow covered mountains to the dizzy heights of 5 or 6,000 metres.
