In May 2015 I was elected to the Salcombe and Thurlestone Ward, having previously represented the Salcombe and Malborough Ward, which included South Huish parish.
My mother was brought up in Paignton and we often used to take holidays both there and in Salcombe. Once married, we always came to Thurlestone.
I spent most of my life in Worcestershire, where our two sons grew up, but they both found work in London and were unlikely to return there. I was a district councillor there for thirteen years before moving here, which is why I seized the opportunity when a by-election arose shortly after I moved to Thurlestone.
My particular interests are housing and planning. I realise the huge problems many local families encounter in the ward due to local house prices and am always happy to try to advise on housing options.
I don't hold surgeries because if you need me, you are likely to need me immediately, not when the next surgery is, so please ring or email me.
