Robin is a retired teacher and has taught since the mid 1980’s. His last job was Head of Year and Head of PE. Since 2010 he has been an elected trade union representative of the National Education Union supporting teachers in difficulty. Robin worked closely with a wide range of organisations supporting some of the most deprived children where he worked.

Robin served on the union’s National Executive Committee visiting Parliament to seek support from MPs about issues to do with schools, children and families. He is an experienced public speaker and enjoys the challenge of addressing large groups of people to get his point across.

As a keen sportsman, Robin played and managed football wherever he was working. He also enjoys following other sports including cricket. History is also a passion and Robin has a particular interest in the First World War and is a member of the Western Front Association.

His great Grandmother was a matchgirl working at the Bryant and May factory in London’s East End in 1898. He is a trustee of the Matchgirls Memorial Trust which commemorates their achievements campaigning for better pay and conditions.

Robin says: I’m raising issues about the impact of the Tipner development on local schools and community services. I want to make a real difference and represent the views of local people to make sure Nelson residents get the services and support they need.”
