Jim has lived in North Berwick for 30 years and is an ex-chairperson of the Community Council. He worked as Principal Teacher of Chemistry at North Berwick High School before taking early retirement to return to university and develop his computer consultancy business. His wife teaches piano at local high schools and his three children were all educated in North Berwick.
Over the last five years Jim has been active in the campaign to ensure the survival of both the Edington Hospital and The Abbey, the only remaining council care home in the North Berwick coastal area, the future of both these essential services having been threatened by the SNP’s Older Peoples Strategy.
Since May 2017 Jim has been the Cabinet Member for Housing and Community Wellbeing.
