Having lived in Eyam and Baslow as I child, I moved back to Baslow with my family in 2003. I am married with three children and am a partner in a firm of Chartered Accountants. I am a Licenced Insolvency Practitioner and specialise in Business Recovery & Insolvency, helping clients who are in financial difficulty.
I joined the Parish Council in 2006 having taken a keen interest in what was happening in the village. I became vice-chairman in 2007 and then chairman in 2011. I am currently a member of the working party involved in the development of the Baslow Woodland Park and previously helped create the Baslow Jubilee Community Orchard, to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
My interests include mountainbiking and music, and recently I was one of the organisers of a successful talent show that raised almost £1,500 for the Baslow St. Anne’s School PTA.
