Lucy Clark, Martyn Hudson

Lucy Clark


Born in Castle Cary, Somerset, in 1939, I was brought up in Bournemouth. After completing a two year Secretarial Course at Bournemouth College, I went off to London and spent three years working for The Times newspaper. I then spent some years in Canada working in Toronto and Vancouver before returning and becoming PA to the Head of the F. English Group which included Maranello, the Ferrari importers. I then married John and we lived in Bexleyheath for many years. I worked in Dartford for Glaxo, the pharmaceutical company, in the Quality Assurance Division dealing with administration. We retired and moved to Verwood in 2000 where I soon got involved with local issues, in particular the pathway from the new Potters Wheel car park into Manor Road. I was a Governor at Hillside Community First School for nine years. I was elected to the District Council in 2003 and re-elected in 2007 and 2011. I was elected to the Town Council in 2007 and again in 2011. I am the EDDC representative on Verwood Age Concern, the Heritage Centre and the Youth Centre. I am now the Verwood Town Council Representative on the Verwood Community Association

Martyn Hudson


In my professional and personal life, I am known as Martyn. In the music world, I am known as ‘Ric’. I don’t mind either, and respond to both.
I was born in Northampton, and ended up in Bournemouth, Via Watford, in 1971, still living then with my parents who had bought and then ran Hurn Post Office for many years.
I moved away from Bournemouth out to 3LeggedX with my wife, Sue Gardiner, in 2006 where we have lived ever since. It is a beautiful area to live in and we do so love it.
For 35yrs, I was an active member of Bournemouth Sports Club at Chapel Gate by Hurn Airport, playing and coaching both Hockey and Cricket up to County level, until physically unable to cope with the required commitment. I retired in 2008. I remain an active Golfer, and I am an Honorary Life Member at Somerley Park Golf Club, near Ringwood.
I am an active Musician, and currently play as a guitarist in a Verwood based ensemble known as ‘Fayrewood Convention’.
We have 2 cats, Bonnie & Clyde, and a competition horse called Saving Grace (Gracie), which my Wife competes in both X-Country and Show-Jumping.
