I am a previous Governor of Easton and Otley college. I retired from my own farming business in 2010 and attended the UEA for a master’s degree in International Development and Climate Change. I am a past Chairman and current Trustee of the Morley Agricultural Foundation which gives financial support to agricultural research and education. I occasionally lecture to UEA students at Morley. I am keen to help develop a clear strategy for future land-based careers at CCN both to meet needs of industry and to broaden knowledge of agriculture and the environment.
