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.
