I have lived in the area for 51 years and elected to Sodbury Town Council in 2006. My main hobby is Amateur Dramatics and I am an Honorary Life Member of Sodbury Players, having been a member for 47 years! I also enjoy visiting Antiques Fairs and all things art and crafty. I am a correspondent for Yate & Sodbury Gazette reporting in the “What’s on” column. My aim is to continue working in the community and to consider the elderly – having a chat and cup of tea can make a huge difference.

I have lived in the Chipping Sodbury area for many years. I took early retirement from Lex Commercials and now help my husband, Adrian, with his business. I am a member of a number of Committees in the area, including Dodington Parish Council, Tourist Information Centre, SYGH Young Peoples Housing Committee, Allotments and Town Trust. A passion of mine would be to make Chipping Sodbury main high street a 20 mph zone.
