Register of Interests


I have been a resident of Leigh for over 40 years. I attended WHSG and completed a Hairdressing apprenticeship in Leigh. I then ran my own salon in Leigh for 20 years before moving into education. I taught History and RE, locally, at Secondary and A-level for 15 years but have recently returned to my previous occupation and now run a business within the Leigh Road Ward, as well as live there. I have 2 adult sons .

One of my main interests is the well-being of our young people and following my re-election of May 2019, I will endeavour to continue to support residents and businesses in Leigh as well as promote the Youth forum.
