I was initiated into Restoration Lodge in 1992 although did not take an active role for many years due to being in the Armed Forces.  I served as Assistant Secretary from 2002 and upon my father death in 2013 inherited the job of Secretary.  I was exalted into the Chapter of Vigilance in 2014 and am currently a Steward. 

I currently run our family owned Convenience Store in Middleton St George and also 5 Rural Post Offices.  At the age of 16 I joined the Army and served with the 15th/19th The Kings’ Royal Hussars, serving in many different countries.  In 1993 I changed direction and joined the Royal Military Police, eventual finishing my career in 2001 working for the Chief of the General Staff in Whitehall, London.

I live in Hartlepool with my Fiancée; we are finally getting married in Aug this year.  We have 3 children, two Girls, one is a Cpl in the Army and the other is Head of IT at Solihull Private School, Birmingham.  Our son is currently finishing off college in Hartlepool.

I have many interests which include Live Music, Theatre and Travel, although we spend most weekends at our caravan.
