I'm Steve White, new treasurer for the NNTA. I’ve been on the committee for the last 4 years and am happy to be taking a more involved role.
Until 2012 I worked on the national rail network, first for British Rail then Railtrack and ended my career with Network Rail. My working life has been varied starting on a local branch line as a Signalman and then moving into the Newcastle office. From there I went to York as Publications Manager then Signalling Safety and then into Track Renewals/Engineering as Health and Safety Manager for the East Coast region covering Berwick to Kings Cross.
I finished working in project management and took voluntary redundancy just as I met my wife Amanda.
We now run Market Cross Guest House in Belford and have not looked back. I love working for myself and even though days off are few and far between in the summer I’d rather be doing this. Northumberland is where I grew up from 1976 and it’s where I intend to be when I retire.
