Moving to Staplehay 22 years ago, after a career in television in London, I have embedded myself in community life, volunteering in many capacities in the villages of Trull and Staplehay alongside raising 3 children. Whilst serving as a Trull ParishCouncillor and District Councillor, I also facilitate for a a mental health charity WATCH in Chard. Issues that I am currently working on include tackling the impact of the Orchard Grove Development on our local communities, speeding on our local roads, supporting the protection of the Trull Weir and Leat and representing Trull Parish Council on the Canonsgrove Liaison Group.
My children attended Trull Primary School, Bishop Henderson Primary School, Wilton Brownies and Trull Scouts. I am passionate about community and the spirit that drives so many to contribute to ensure important values are maintained.
