I was born in Blackpool Victoria Hospital. My family is well known on the Fylde, and I am proud to be the 7th generation to carry on farming on one of the oldest working family farms in the area. I attended Wrea Green Primary School and King Edwards Secondary School before studying a degree in Livestock Technology at Myerscough College. I am now in partnership with my Father at Ridgeway Farm as a dairy and arable farmer. I also complete Agriculture and Equine contract work throughout Warton and Westby and the Fylde, working closely with a local equine charity. I became a Warton and Westby Ward councillor in May 2017 and believe strongly in making the place we all live in a nicer and greater place to live, work and visit.
