I was born in Manchester, did teacher training in Sheffield College and Oxford where I met my husband. Over the years we lived in Hampshire, Birmingham and Kent and I fitted my career in teaching, around the demands of bringing up a family. I moved to Cambridge after my divorce to be Head of Swaffham Prior School. I have lived in Burwell for nearly 20 years and am very happy here and like to keep busy and involved locally. I have been a Parish Councillor; a Churchwarden at St Mary’s Swaffham Prior; and a bell ringer at St. Mary’s Burwell. I have been made so welcome; it would be an honour to represent the people of Burwell at the District Council.
