Local councillor for 31 years and ex chairman. Local firefighter based in Harborough for 30 years. Married with three grown up children all educated in town. Member of local Lions club and now working with two other charities.
John moved to Market Harborough in 1978 and apart from a six-year gap, has lived in the town ever since. His children grew up in the town making use of sports and leisure clubs so he is now keen to give back to his community.
He is a retired police officer and works voluntarily for a number of local charities. John's interests include walking, reading about the history of mathematics and driving his old Land Rover Defender.
Born and educated in Leicestershire, with a working life mostly spent in education, I became a local Councillor in a Market Harborough town ward in 2007. I continue to enjoy working and helping people in the community.
My youngest son has a business in the town, and my husband has been organist in the parish church for over 37 years, where I am a member of the church choir. I occasionally join in Market Harborough’s Park Run in Welland Park.
