I was born in Gorleston, Norfolk, and after three years in the army moved to London. I moved back to Martham in 2002 when I retired and have been involved with the Parish Council since 2004.  I am a very keen fisherman, and have a boat on the River.  I am keen to offer my time where it best serves the community, and as a Councillor am primarily involved in Finance and the Community Centre.

I am married , 69 years young and have lived in Martham since 1971 enjoying our lovely village. I have almost fully retired , working only one day a week now and have rejoined the council after a short break. My real interest is maintaining our village as a friendly community with  rural appeal offering good facilities to all age groups.
I will work to improve our local habitat in and around the greens, I also intend being active in trying to improve housing development in keeping with our village and try to influence the availability of low cost housing.

I’ve lived in Martham with my husband Matt since 2007 and run a local digital agency. I’ve spent many years volunteering as a digital champion supporting people to get online.  My role on the Parish Council’s communications sub-committee allows me to improve how easy it is to contact the council, have your say and take action.
