I was born in Nelson but have lived most of my life in that great town Bonnie Colne on the Hill.
I am father to three children, two of which live and work in Cornwall, and three grand children, which clocks up the miles. I am now retired but in my working life travelled extensively for and was a senior manufacturing manager with Rolls Royce.
A lifelong Claret I can still remember the highs and lows of BFC including Leyton Orient.
Unlike David our Secretary and Vice Chair. I do not have a dog named after Bertie Bee, but I do know Bertie’s true identity. This of course will remain a closely guarded secret.
David was born in Nelson and is married with 2 children. He is a Chartered Librarian and currently works for The Equality and Human Rights Commission.
David is Chair of Burnley Council’s Independent Remuneration Panel and a lay magistrate.
A lifelong Claret David’s interests include politics, theatre, music and long walks with his dog Bertie (yes named after the club mascot!).
My Family live in Burnley and have been Burnley Football Club supporters all of their lives so it was only natural that I became a lifelong Claret.
I am fourth generation to “stand on the terraces” of Turf Moor.
I was a Board Member of the Board of Management at a Housing Association where I was also on the Audit Committee & Diversity Committee and served as Diversity Champion.
I previously served as a Governor at a local Primary School.
As well as a Board Member, Treasurer & Webmaster of the BFCDSA, I am also a Board Member, Treasurer and Webmaster of the Clarets Trust.
I am currently a Trustee and Treasurer of a local registered Charity.
Outside of this my interests include travelling, photography, cooking and computing.
