I’d like to introduce myself in case you don’t already know 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 recently.
The family (my son & daughter and Keith’s two sons) are all grown up and settled in their own homes though they were all 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 am actively involved with many organisations locally such as The Barnwood Community Partnership, 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 and am also Chair of the Gloucester Culture Trust – see more detail on the Culture & Leisure page. In September I was thrilled to be appointed as 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 at least every two months. 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 email@example.com
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!
