I worked for National Air Traffic Services at Heathrow, Swanwick and eventually the NATS Training College at Hurn Airport. I have lived in Christchurch for 20 years and have two children and grandchildren who frequently return to the area.
I have been secretary for five years of the very pro-active Christchurch Citizens Association, which has well over 100 members. I volunteer weekly at the Macmillan Caring Locally Hospice and am a Dorset Devil Litter picker.
I attend Full Council Meetings bi-monthly, and am on two Christchurch Town Council (CTC) committees - Communities and Deputy Chair of Resources, I also represent the CTC at the Friends of Druitt Gardens meetings.
