I have been a school governor for the greater part of 30 years in ministry and see this as an important part of my work and contribution to the local community.I have tried to support all of the schools in my parishes/areas of authority as a governor, supporter and when appropriate as a help with collective worship or visits to church. I have served on various governor committees.
