I have been privileged to represent North Walney as a Borough Councillor for the last 20 years and my proudest moment came as representing the town as Mayor for the year 2017/18.
I am passionate about Barrow and have a huge passion for music across all genres.
Being a presenter for CandoFM really is a dream come true and I hope to play a positive role in helping the Station grow bigger and bigger, and with the quality presenters on the rota this really is an incredibly exciting time moving forward.

Along with playing the drums and learning the ropes as a wannabe singer, music is heavily at the heart of my life.
