Election statement 2014

I have lived in Chessington for 35 years with my husband David. We have 3 children who all attended Kingston schools.

I was a Project Worker for Kingston Voluntary Action for 9 years where I coordinated tasks such as decorating, gardening and newsletter collation for volunteers with mental health issues and learning disabilities. I have been a Volunteer with Chessington Care since 1988.

I have always had an interest in my local community and was Vice-Chair of the local Residents Association before being elected as a Councillor for Chessington South Ward in 1998.

I have had a number of special responsibilities on the Council since that time including Chair of Neighbourhood, Planning, Transport, Waste, Environment, Children’s Services, Education and Better Homes.

As a local Councillor, I have worked with residents on a number of issues including saving the 467 Bus, and improvements to the A243 Leatherhead Road.

There is still much more to be done!

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, cake decorating, gardening, dog walking, travel and spending time with family and friends.

I look forward to being able to continue working hard to represent everyone who lives in Chessington North and Hook, and to build on the many improvements my colleagues and I have made to the local area.
