Steering Group Member

Current role: Chair - Wakefield Civic Society

Kevin is a native of Wakefield and has lived in and around the city all his life. After a 40-year career in the Civil Service, culminating as a senior project and programme manager, Kevin now devotes much of his time to charity work, writing, public speaking, and travel.

In addition to his role with Wakefield Civic Society, Kevin also became a trustee of the Yorkshire and Humber Association of Civic Societies (YHACS) in 2002 and was elected as its Chair in January 2011, a role which he also continues to fulfil.

He has held previous trustee roles at Wakefield-based arts charity Beam where he was deputy chair, and also the Community Foundation for Wakefield District.

Quirky fact: Kevin once won a t-shirt for his disco dancing.
