A little bit of background about me.
I’ve lived with my husband Keith in the Abbeymead part of the Barnwood Ward for over 20 years. Prior to that I lived in Hucclecote from 1982 having moved from Longlevens where I was brought up. I only left Gloucester during term time from 1976-80 to get my degree, returning to take up a career in IT where I worked as a Project Manager until July 2017.
The family (my son & daughter and Keith’s two sons) are all grown up and settled with their families. All were brought up locally and attended local schools.
Since 2004 I have served as a Conservative City Councillor for the Barnwood Ward and from 1990–94 was a City Councillor for Hucclecote.
I was honoured to serve as Mayor of Gloucester from 2005-6 and Sheriff from 20014-15.
I actively support where possible and keep in touch with many organisations locally, I am a trustee of Hucclecote Community Association and am also President of Gloucester District Scouts.
In May 2015 I took on the role of Cabinet Member for Culture & Leisure. I am the Vice-Chair of the Gloucester Culture Trust – see more detail on the Culture & Leisure page, a trustee of The Gloucester History Trust who arrange the annual History Festival and I am honoured to be a member of the South West Arts Council Board.
I ensure that Barnwood residents are kept up to date with a leaflet or newspaper delivered through the door on average six times a year. I also receive many calls from residents and over the past years have been pleased to have been able to help a lot of people. To contact me please ring 610702 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
When I do get spare time I enjoy going to concerts with Keith and to relax I’ve either got knitting, crochet or cross stitch on the go!
