Until retirement, I was Director General of Age Concern (now merged into Age UK) and Chief Executive of the Age Concern Group.
I am a Burnley Borough Councillor, Treasurer of the Social Liberal Forum, and Organising Secretary of the Liberal Democrat
Parliamentary Candidates Association. I’m also a Director of NLC Ltd.
The many roles I have held in the Liberals and Liberal Democrats over nearly 60 years include Federal Board and predecessors (1969-2020); Chair, International Relations Committee; and Chair, Association of Liberal Councillors / Association of LD Councillors. I have been a Parliamentary candidate a total of seven times and a European Parliament candidate twice.
With three children and five grand-children, I take delight in organising group family holidays. (Gordon joined the Club in 1978 and was elected to the Gen Cttee in 2014).
