I first qualified and worked as a nurse before becoming a lawyer. I now combine the two qualifications in my role of Assistant Coroner for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, and also for Oxfordshire. I regularly hold Inquests in Huntingdon and in Oxford.
I have lived in Barrington for 12 years and have been a Parish Councillor for 7 of those. My passion and enthusiasm centre on enhancing the well-being of the local community. So in the last 3 years, in the face of a growing population, I have focussed on campaigning for better Health provision and in setting up the Barrington Speed Reduction Working Group. I have also been active in starting the QE2 Woodland Working Group to support our wonderful Volunteers. I am particularly concerned about the need for much better provision for older people – including housing and access to services.
The work of the Parish Council is varied, interesting and challenging and I am pleased to be able to use my legal and negotiating skills to help guide our Village through the redevelopment of the Cemex site and the complexities of the 106 agreement.
I am always pleased to hear the views of villagers as it is you that we represent.
