I came to Lewes in 1967 after obtaining a position in the then Borough Treasurers Dept. in the Council Offices in Fisher Street.  I later worked in the Lewes Boys Club as secretary and was involved with the Leader in the youth activities.  I enjoyed this time with teenagers.  I then spent 13 years at the University of Sussex Security Dept. as a Co-ordinator, which again involved young people.

Having been elected to the Town Council for Castle Ward in May 2019 I fully intend to use my experience with Council Departments and people, to help and advise or direct where necessary any resident of the ward who may seek my help.

I attend the meetings of Landport Residents Association, a very active and resourceful organisation and help wherever possible.  I take particular interest in the residents of the sheltered accommodation in my own road and their day to day problems.  I volunteer several days a week in a well known local Charity shop and attend as many civic events as I can.  I am on the East Sussex Highways Customer Panel and Sussex Police Peoples Voice.

I have three children and several grandchildren all living and working in the town.  My interests include gardening,  genealogy, local history, reading, painting and more.  I enjoy visiting historic houses and gardens and I am a member of the National Trust.

My hopes for Lewes include cleaner air, a better traffic system, more recreational facilities, care of our elderly, homes affordable for all and the protection of the unique heritage which we enjoy in this town.
