Councillor for Hedon Town Council
I am a Hedon Town Councillor of 35 yrs (Mayor in 2015-2017).
I have lived in South West Holderness for 52 yrs. and in Hedon for 42 yrs. where I am proprietor of a shop. My family and I have committed our time and energy to the community during this period.
I have been Chairman of both Hedon Town Council’s Planning and Property Committees on several occasions. A founder member of the Hedon Preservation Society. Past Chairman of The Painters Charity. A director (unpaid) of the P.L.P. High Street. Ltd. Hull. Treasurer of The Amy Black Community Centre.
At the 2015 county council election, I came a creditable fourth, losing by only 178 votes to the Tories, this time with your support I could succeed. As a Socialist. I believe, when amenities (Schools, Universities, Healthcare, Transport, Libraries, Museums, etc.) are free at the point of use, the happier and more content and the more prosperous society will become.
When time allows I like working on our allotment and garden, reading and playing Bridge.
