I have enjoyed living in Verwood for 40 years. I have many happy memories from growing up here, attending Sunday school, Hillside First School, Brownies, youth club, working and socialising. I have always taken part in community events, with my four children doing the same. I am proud to be Verwood Carnival Chairman and also of my new role as a Town Councillor.
I studied art design and horticulture and with a degree in garden design, I work locally as a garden designer. I have also supported the homeless in Bournemouth and surrounding areas for many years, and now I am the chairman of a registered charity called Second Chance, I give up my time to be a support worker to our clients.
I am proud to be part of a wonderful community here in Verwood and look forward to more community involvement that this role may bring.
