‘I have lived in Ilfracombe for 13 years and have 5 children who attend all 3 town schools. My husband works for Community Resources in Ilfracombe.

I have always been actively involved in projects which aim to improve the lives of people in the town.

My two main concerns in Ilfracombe currently, are health and housing and the link between them. My objective is to work with all interested parties to improve housing standards and reduce health inequality.

I am Secretary and Trustee of the League of Friends of the Tyrrell Hospital and I volunteer in the Tyrrell Hospital Shop. I am a volunteer at ‘Belles Place’ and a long term volunteer at Cow Green Community Garden. I am also a member of the Patient Participation Group and a Friend of Ilfracombe Library.
