I am married to Greg and we have two cats!
We have lived in Occold for 12 years, Greg being born and raised just down the road in Eye and myself, being born and raised in Ipswich.
I have recently ‘retired' from paid employment, and am enjoying the additional time that this now enables me to spend in the village.
I am treasurer of ORAC and editor of the Oracle magazine and so, am kept busy with the work that this entails. I also enjoy going in to the school twice a week, to help the children with their reading skills. I had, until recent ill health required that I stepped down, also helped out at the fortnightly luncheon club. I hope to be able to return to the club soon, as I really enjoyed getting to know the folk that come along for a wonderful two-course lunch.
Greg and I are members of Jubilee Baptist Church. Greg is an Elder and treasurer of the church and he is also invited to preach at other churches across Suffolk.
I look forward to serving the people of Occold in my position as Parish Councillor and hope that together, we can ensure that Occold is a village we can really enjoy living in.
