Originally from York and having enjoyed many a Scottish holiday when younger, I have had the privilege of living in bonny Scotland for most of my adult life, settling in Colinton with my wife and family over 25 years ago. Our children, now in their twenties, attended Bonaly.
Having worked in Administration and graduating from Napier I made a career change and now run a busy specialist Plumbing and Heating business based here in Colinton, which has been established for over 20 years.
When time allows interests include hillwalking (summer only now!), renewable energy, and asking CEC to maintain the infrastructure of our Edinburgh roads. Having always had a preference for public transport rather than using a private vehicle my wish is to encourage other people to move away from private transport to public transport with a view to reducing atmospheric pollution.
