I have been a member of the Lord Chancellors Advisory Committee for Cheshire on Justices of the Peace and have chaired the Courts Board for Cheshire and Merseyside.
I am currently Chair of Your Housing Group (a registered Housing Provider with 33,000 homes across the North West) and also of the Aldridge Group of Colleges in Darwen.
Married to John, we have two sons, Michael and Andrew; and two grandchildren, Harry and Constance.
