Additional Information

I became a member of Saltash Town Council after being co-opted for East Ward in February 2021. Following the May 2021 elections, I am now an elected Councillor for Essa Ward.

A bit about me: My family moved from Hemerdon, Devon to Saltash in 1977. I attended Longstone Infants, Saltash Junior School and Saltash Comprehensive. I have older twin sisters and one younger sister, all of which still reside in Saltash with their families.

I live near the Town Centre and share my home with my husband , two sons and our three cats.

I worked for Plymouth City Council Revenues and Finance for 17 years. Most of this was in customer facing roles in the Council Tax and Housing Benefits Department, which helped me appreciate the diverse range of people living around us. I am a friendly, empathetic, down to earth person who is always happy to help anyone. I left Plymouth City Council after taking voluntary redundancy and now spend my time carrying out voluntary work in the town.

I am a volunteer at Community Enterprises PL12 and enjoy baking cakes in the Community Kitchen for their cafe. It is a challenge which I love as I have to try and create cakes from donated food. The courgette cake and rhubarb and ginger loaf were a success with the customers. I love history, especially the history of this fantastic town; I am a member of the Saltash Heritage committee. I enjoy my time stewarding in the museum, teaching visitors about all our local history we should be proud of.

During my time on the council, I have become a member of many of the sub committees and working groups. I am currently the Chairman of the Station Property Sub Committee, and Vice Chairman of the Devolution Sub Committee. I am currently part of the working groups which aim to improve the Town Centre and Waterside connectivity, these are some exciting projects to be working on, to find out further information on these projects please visit the consultation page of the Town Councils website via the following weblink https://www.saltash.gov.uk/consultations.php

In my spare time I enjoy walks in the country and days on the beach with the family, I also love running and have entered the Saltash Half Marathon again this year, the best half marathon in the country – in my opinion!

I am very passionate about our town, its history, its present and, most importantly, its future. It is an honour to serve this fantastic community.
