I was then appointed H.M. Inspector of Fire Services for 7 years and was Chief Executive Of the Fire Service College. There-after I spent 10 years as a Risk Management Consultant.
Apart from a keen interest in local government, I enjoy travelling and riding a motorcycle which is a lifelong passion I am always busy on some form of DIY. I have two very grown-up daughters and a very demanding very small dog.
