Parent Carers Together

I am a member of the Steering Group for Parent Carers Together, which is the parent carer forum representing the voices of parents of children and young people (0-25 years) with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP).

Vine Church Poole

I am an elder of Vine Church Poole, which is a vibrant, charismatic evangelical church family, with Jesus at the centre. We meet together on Sunday Mornings from 10.00am until 11.00am and throughout the week at various groups.


Since retiring from full-time employment I have been exploring my creative side by writing poetry. You can sample some of my poems here.

Family History

I enjoy researching family history. I am currently engaged in a long-term project to write biographies of my eight great-great-grandfathers, who lived between about 1820 and 1910.
