I have lived all my life in the village of Wawne. I was educated at the local village primary school and later attended Beverley Grammar School where I Studied Engineering and latterly Beverley Joint Sixth Form were, I studied Politics, Geography and General Studies.
I am currently a sitting Parish Councillor and Editor of the Village Gazette. I have led the Parish Council into a more modern way of communicating using the Gazette and Social Media. Recently I have been responsible for producing the Parish Councils budget and working with residents to see improvements being made around the village including bins, paths and the Play Park.
I have a real passion for volunteering, which I have been able to fulfil in my role as a Humberside Police Community Safety Volunteer. This role I was able to engage with all different types of communities across the Humberside Force area and I have learnt a lot about the work the police force do. This has encouraged me to help fight ageist crime and work the Holderness policing teams and collages against rural crime in particular.
I am also currently a Cub Scout Leader for the Cherry Burton Cub Pack which allows me to help the young people engage and learn new skills for life as well as making a real impact and difference to the local community and beyond. I have a real drive to make sure everyone’s voice is heard and want to improve the voice and influence of young people across the East Riding of Yorkshire.
In my day job I am a E-Commerce Executive for a medium Confectionery & Snacking Specialist based in the village of Tickton.
If any residents would like to contact me for help and advice or raise any issues please feel free. I am completely approachable and will treat all cases equally and with the utmost confidentiality.
