I moved to Chiswell Green over 30 years ago with my husband Nigel and brought up our daughters who are both now married and still living in Hertfordshire. I had been involved with the Residents’ Association for several years when I was asked if I was interested in becoming a Parish Councillor. Sadly Nigel died not long after I was elected, but eight years on I am still a councillor. I continue to be employed at Killigrew School but on a much smaller scale than in the past. I spend a lot of my spare time with charities – Lord’s Taverners, Rotary and I’m the treasurer for a large local netball club, still playing on the team occasionally.
I feel it is important to contribute to the local community if able to do so. I like to be involved with matters concerning the environment and with events that draw in the local residents so they can see what a great place our Parish is to live in.
