I have over 25 years’ experience as a Parish Councillor and School Governor. I have been Chair of Governors at Broadwater Down Primary for 16 years and am a Director of the Local Primary Schools Collaborative Trust. I understand how Councils work, I understand the needs of the local community and I know how to get things done!

Having campaigned for my rights for over 6 years I was eventually appointed as the first female sound engineer at the BBC, first working in radio and then moving on to television outside broadcasts. After an exciting career of 34 years I took early retirement to concentrate on my voluntary work. As a Parish Councillor I have always been involved in community projects such as allotments and open spaces and as a school governor have always been ‘hands on’ active..
