I was the Member of Parliament for Bury North being first elected in May 2010 and re-elected in May 2015. I am standing for re-election at the general election to be held on 8th June 2017.
The Bury North Constituency covers the towns of Bury, Ramsbottom and Tottington together with a number rural villages and hamlets.
I was educated at a Comprehensive School and then joined a firm of Solicitors as a Trainee Legal Executive. I obtained a law degree and qualified as a Solicitor in 1990. I became a Partner in the same firm that I joined after leaving school and ran the firm for 16 years employing over 40 staff.
I am married to Susan and we live in Tottington.
Apart from politics I enjoy watching sport and walking in our beautiful countryside. I am President of Tottington St. John’s Cricket Club and a Patron of Ramsbottom Cricket Club. I am also a member of the Rotary Club in Bury.
Susan and I attend St. Anne’s Church in Tottington where I was one of the church wardens between 2009 and 2016.
