I am a retired secondary school teacher and Assistant Principal who has lived in Quorn for four years. During my time here I have involved myself in various community activities. I am Secretary of Quorn Ukulele Orchestra, a member of the Medical Practice Virtual Patient Participation Group and participate in Quorn Open Gardens every year. I live in the heart of the village, use village shops and businesses and involve myself in village events. I am lucky enough to have the time, energy and skills to want to make a contribution to the community in which I live.

I stood for election to the Parish Council because I think it is very important that Parish Councillors receive a democratic mandate, since they spend public money and make decisions that affect people’s lives. I was delighted to be elected and would like to thank you for putting your trust in me. As well as being a member of the Parish Council itself I am also on the Planning Committee and the Grounds and Facilities Committee. I am a great believer in listening, and hope that villagers will bring their concerns and priorities forward to me, and to the other Parish Councillors, so that we can answer them or bring them to the attention of those who can.
