I have lived in Newtown for many years. I have been employed by Nidec Control Techniques for over twenty years holding a number of different roles during this time.
I was delighted to be co-opted onto Newtown Town Council in June 2017. This is because I am committed to Newtown and passionate about the town. For these reasons, I would like to help make a difference to Newtown to the town itself and the town’s people along with the other Town Councillors especially with the many challenges currently facing the town. I would like to do this with the skills, knowledge and experience I have gained over the years along with my energy, passion and commitment.
In my spare time I like to keep fit by going to the gym and swimming. I like reading and following football.

Your Council’s decisions are made at meetings of the council or its committees. Your Councillors have a duty to attend all meetings of the Council and meetings of the Committees of which they are members, unless an absence is approved by the meeting for a stated reason, for example a council duty elsewhere or ill-health.
Note that some councillors have been required to attend more meetings than others by reason, for example, of a shorter term of office or lesser number of committees to which elected, so the reader is advised to consider both the total number and the percentage when interpreting the attendance record.

There are no legal requirements for councillors to undertake training either before or after being elected.
