As a local resident and with 2 children who attend Holden Clough Primary School, I am keen to help the school progress and promote its vision and ethos. As a senior manager in the NHS, I feel I can offer a range of skills and knowledge that would be valuable to the school in the position of a governor or board of director position. I have been involved in most of the events organised by the school and the PTA to contribute what I can. I am also a football coach for a local team. Many of the children who attend the school attend the soccer school where I coach.
