Buckinghamshire Councillor for Abbey
I was first elected as a Councillor in 1991 and have been a member of Wycombe District Council, Buckinghamshire County Council and now the new Buckinghamshire Unitary Council, representing the same area, now Abbey Ward, for all that time
I have held many positions in my time as a local councillor from Committee Chairman to Leader and Chairman of Council. I had the honour of being Mayor of the town of High Wycombe in 1994/5 and Deputy Mayor 2021/22. So, a very varied, interesting and exciting career as a local councillor, which culminated in my being made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in May 2013 and great honour. From 2018 to 2022 I had both the honour, and privilege, to be the Chairman of the Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Fire Authority and I was proud to represent such a wonderful group of people, I am a Charter Trustee for the unparished area of the town of High Wycombe.
Locally, I am involved in my community as a school governor, in local charities, the local neighbourhood forum, resident’s associations, and community board.
I am married, we have three daughters and four grandchildren. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, cooking and travelling with my husband.
