Mr Geoff Bishop – (Vice Chair) LEA
My wife Karen and I moved from Devon to Slingsby in 2012 to be near our daughter, husband and young family and we love the village. Born in Dewsbury in the West Riding and educated at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, Wakefield my career started in the Diplomatic Service and then to the charity world which included management at Lee Abbey (a Christian Holiday & Conference Centre in North Devon), hotel management, company secretary and very fulfilling years at the hospice in Bath and Director of St Catherine’s Hospice in Scarborough for 9 years. Our son Mark and his wife live in London with one year old daughter Freya. Hobbies include cricket, tennis, badminton and best of all grand parenting! As a new Local Authority governor, I have much to learn and it is a privilege to serve the school/community in this way.
