Bill has been involved in Town politics for many years and has just stepped down from the Town Council after 35 years having been Mayor of the Town on three occasions. He is a County Councillor for Grange.
He was born in South Cumbria and has lived and worked in the area most of his life. He comes from a local farming family. His Grandfathers and Father before him were farmers.
Bill spent the first 24 years of his life in the farming industry and the last 40 years in the retail sector having run businesses in Grange and Kendal from Grocery, Greengrocery and Fishmonger to Quality Gifts and Cards in partnership with his wife Joyce.
He has recently retired from business and now concentrates on his County Council work as Chair of the Health and Wellbeing Scrutiny Committee. In his spare time he goes walking, likes to read and helps Joyce in the garden under strict supervision. Joyce and Bill have two grown up daughters, one of whom lives and works in the USA.
