I have lived in Alcester for most of my life and I have been married to Tim for 21 years and have 3 grown up daughters. Tim is currently the High Bailiff for Alcester Court Leet. I have worked for a local company in Alcester for the last 16 years as an office manager.
I was elected as a councillor in May 2015 and I sit on two of the Council’s committees these being the Community Care Committee and the Community Facilities Committee. As part of the Community Care Committee I am involved with the Youth Council. The Youth Council are a part of the Town Council and are the “Voice” of young people in the development of Alcester’s Town plan. I am also helping to organise a Clubs and Society day where local organisations can show case their activities with a view to recruiting new members. My role as a member of the Community Facilities Committee is to be involved with the running and upkeep of the Community buildings around the Town and also the play areas, recreational facilities, trees, footpaths, litter bins, allotments, Cemetery and all other matters of an environmental nature.
As well as sitting on the two committees I am a council representative of the Newport School Foundation. This is a trust fund dedicated to promoting the education of individuals, under the age of 25, with special benefits and support that is not otherwise readily available within the town.
I am also an active member of Alcester Community Trust and this trust has been responsible for bringing the market back to Alcester in the form of the monthly Artisan Market. It has also been responsible for organising the inaugural Alcester 10K run; an event I hope will become an annual occurrence.
I have been a school governor at local schools for the past 15 years and I am currently the Chair of finance at Alcester Academy where I am also part of the HR committee.
