I was born in Ilfracombe and am now retired after running my own business in the town for over 20 years.

I have been a town councillor for over 6 years and sit on the Finance and General Purposes and Staffing committees.

I also am ITC representative on the Harbour forum, a Trustee for the Ilfracombe Museum, and Launch Authority for our RNLI Lifeboat.

Ilfracombe is a wonderful place to live, with a great community spirit, I feel so lucky that as a Town Councillor I can do my bit to improve things for locals and visitors alike.

I fully support the Ilfracombe Strategic plan and the One Ilfracombe initiative.
