In 1993, I embarked, with others, on the process of establishing a community based credit union in Wigan. We took "our" credit union through the training and the process of registration issued our first loans and ran a small community based credit union for almost 10 years when the credit unions in Wigan came together to form Unify Credit Union.
I chose not to take a role in Wigans new credit union, but was invited to join the board of Halton Credit Union. Adding my knowledge and experience to this newly formed credit union. I have served Halton Credit Union as both a director and compliance officer since then.
I have worked as IT professional all my working life. I am married, have two step-sons and three lovely grandchildren. I support both Wigan Athletic and Wigan Warriors.
