Additional Information

Why I became a councillor: Having lived and worked in this lovely area of West Dorset all my life I feel that I do understand the issues that affect our rural communities.  The current economic climate means that there are many very difficult decisions to be made and I want to ensure that efficient services are supplied at an economical cost


Top three issues :

-                      Social isolation both for older and young people

-                      Appropriate housing for everyone

-                      Developing a base of better paid jobs that will encourage young people to stay in the area


Favourite place: Cattistock as this is where I live but also Thorncombe Beacon looking out to sea


Other information : I trained and work as a teacher at a Field Study centre. I am also an experienced business woman having run a busy engineering design business and also worked as a small business advisor for Business Link. I love to ride out on my horse Muffin and to walk in this beautiful area.  I am also a keen gardener with a big allotment.
