About me – I am married and a father to Belle and Polly. I serve as a Police Officer with Merseyside Police. Before this in many parts of the world serving as a Royal Marines Commando. Having two young children and working shifts there’s not a lot of downtime at the moment, however I prefer things fast paced.


Statement - I am proud to be a Parent governor at Saltney Ferry CP, as I believe I can cast an independent eye over the workings of what is already a fantastic school, I know my daughter is very happy here and looks forward to going to school everyday which as a parent is very reassuring. The role of a parent governor is a vastly responsible one and I would like an inside look on how things work and a chance to bring my previous and current experiences to our school.
