About me

I have lived in the ward for 17 years, becoming politically active in the last two and half. I have an honours degree from the Open University in Humanities with Art History, and for the last eight years I have been a room guide at Kingston Lacy house for the National Trust. I also have an MA in Film Studies from the University of Southampton.

I cycle with a group at Moors Valley and am a member of the Fitness Club at the Village Hotel in Bournemouth.  

My priorities

  • To ensure that the core strategy for the next 15 years does not contain proposals which would adversely affect the quality of life for residents in the ward.
  • To ensure that public land within the ward is not developed or disposed of without public consultation. These priorities will be more easily achieved if there is a Neighbourhood Forum for the ward. I will encourage residents to establish one. 
  • To spend money received from developers on projects to benefit the ward after consultation.
