I have been a Governor at Barnby Road for over 10 years. I have lived in Newark for most of my life and went to Barnby Road myself. I know this community well and love that this school is a massive part of the community. I was chair of The Friends group for 12 years and managed to raise a fair bit of money for the children with a great team of people to help. I am a Local Government Officer and have been for over 20 years. I am married with two children, both of whom went to Barnby Road. I swim regularly, read anything I can get my hands on, and am involved with a local Cheerleading squad. I am also a Director of Newark Radio.
