Welcome to my Website

Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you will find it useful. I am a Labour Councillor and a member of Wirral Borough Council.

I am Cabinet Member for Education & Lifelong Learning. I was first elected in May 1991 and was re-elected in June 2004 as Councillor for the Birkenhead and Tranmere Ward to serve the interests of all residents, regardless of political persuasion.

There are 3 Labour Councillors in Birkenhead (the other members are Jean Stapleton and Brian Kenny). We all hold regular surgeries at locations across the Ward, helping residents to have a voice, as part of the decision making process and reflecting the views of the local electorate at Council meetings.

I am a member of the Employment and Appointments Committee and chair a number of committees relating to education, i.e. Admissions Forum, School Organisation Committee, Headteachers and Teachers Joint Consultative Committee. I also chair the Wirral Learning Partnership, a multi-agency body focussing on post-16 education and training. I represent the Learning Partnership on the Wirral Local Strategic Partnership and the Wirral Waterfront Board. 

I am a non-executive director of the following organisations: The Mersey Partnership; Greater Merseyside Enterprise; the PSL Group (Pentra); The Lauries; Wirral Multi-cultural Organisation; and the Laird Foundation.

I also represent Wirral Borough Council on the Merseyside Objective 1 Programme Monitoring Committee and chair a post-2006 European funding lobbying group as well as the Wirral Pathways (Priority 4) Board .

At ward level I am chair of the Lairdside Partnership, the Callister Youth Club Management Committee and am a member of the Birkenhead and Tranmere and Rock Ferry Area Forum.

I am a governor of Wirral Metropolitan College and three primary schools - Woodlands, St Werburghs and Gilbrook.

I am the independent chair of the Greater Merseyside Aimhigher Area Steering Group.
