I moved to the village 18 years ago and, wising to get involved in village life, I joined the Parish Council at the elections in 2011.

I was an inaugural member of the Village Roads, Pavements and Lighting Committee and have enjoyed assisting at the many Parish Council events held over this period, particularly the welcome for the Olympic Torch Relay as it passed through the village in 2012 when large numbers of residents (and also Parish Council members) dressed in Dickensian costume, as it was also the 200 year anniversary of  his birth.

I also organise the volunteer drivers for Higham Age Concern to ensure that the senior citizens amongst our community are collected so that they can enjoy a good meal and some company at Merston Court.
