Allotment holding, membership of Maldon Golf Club and 5 grandchildren attending various schools in Maldon take up the remainder of my time.

Mr Ray Hockley - DOA 1st April 2014
I am passionate about trying to raise standards where it relates to children’s wider education and experience of the world. I am a firm believer that children have a huge capacity to realise their potential with good inspirational role models alongside good education. I see the opportunity to inspire the development of any young person regardless of their starting ability or competency level.
A father of twin 12 year old boys, I have been in a company director role managing my own IT businesses for 30 years mainly in the financial markets. I have been involved in voluntary youth organisations for 18 years and am a keen sailor and enjoy skippering yachts, as well as being a qualified football referee.
Mr Mark Lewin - DOA 16th May 2016
I have been a parent governor at Meadgate Primary School for over 3 years. With two boys at the school, I have proudly seen a dramatic turnaround in the school’s fortunes. I believe this experience combined with my commercial experience as a senior management with a highly successful Essex-based transport training company together with my experience as a board member of the Association of Trainers places me in a strong position to help guide and advise professionals and pupils within all of the schools of The Eveleigh LINK Academy Trust to realise their goals and ambitions.
