I was born in Bradford and raised in Halifax, I took a history degree and, after working as a bus conductor and postman, taught History for a living. I came to Appleby Grammar School in 1973, got married in 1975, and for over forty years taught generations of local youngsters, including my own three children. I was first drawn into political activity through my interest in public transport. I was Mayor of Appleby, and currently serve as a unitary authority councillor, representing Appleby on Westmorland and Furness Council. I produced a book-length study of the history and mythology of Appleby Gypsy Horse Fair, which was published in 2015 and revised in 2019. I am interested in many sports and enjoy cycling, and watching live cricket and football.
