As a resident of this special town, I’m keen to make my contribution as a Town Councillor. My goal is to listen to residents who have different views and needs to try to help them with today’s challenges and beyond. I strongly believe councillors must all work together to achieve the things that will benefit all residents and the town.

Having retired from 10 years work with a non-profit, Community Interest Company promoting local food, I now have the time and enthusiasm to get involved as a councillor. I bring knowledge from an earlier career in scientific technology as well as over 30 years’ experience as a governor in schools and a trustee of other organisations.

I currently volunteer at the Town Mill where I’m a trustee and I sing with the Lyme Bay Moonrakers shanty group, performing regularly to support local events. Recently I’ve taken on the role of coordinator for the newly formed Lyme Bay area energy champions. Our five volunteers were trained through funding from the Town Council and are available to local residents to offer free tips on how to save energy, reduce bills, keep warm and avoid problems such as damp and condensation.

I believe a Town Councillor’s role is one of collaboration, listening to residents and supporting efforts to improve life here for our community.
