About

Local Boy Made Good

 

I grew up in the North West, living in Wilmslow, attending Stockport Grammar before going to study Mathematics at Cambridge.

 

I moved to London to qualify as Chartered Accountant. After a year in Milton Keynes, I returned to London where I started work for Clarins, the skincare and beauty company.

 

Love & Monsters

In London, I met Alex Wilcock. Drawn together by shared interest in politics and a love of Doctor Who, we have been together for more than 20 years.

In 2014, thanks to legislation passed by the Liberal Democrats in the Coalition Government, Alex and I were finally able to get married, which we did surrounded by friends and family in a ceremony at Stockport Town Hall.

 

 

 

 

Bringing it Home

 

I've had many opportunities, now I want to give something back.

Alex and I have come back to live in Cheadle Hulme to be near to family and friends and to help the Liberal Democrats win back Stockport Council and the Parliamentary Seats of Cheadle and Hazel Grove.
