I was born in Whitby and have lived in Keighley for 36 years. I have three children who have all ‘flown the nest’, my eldest daughter lives in London, my son in Leeds and my other daughter in Newcastle Upon Tyne. I currently work with my husband Chris in his software development business. I have a passion for scuba diving and travel and love to do both when time allows, I also have two dogs who keep me on my toes.
I developed an interest in Keighley Town Council some years ago, however, because of family and work commitments I never seemed to be able to afford the time to pursue and stand for council. I am very passionate about doing the right thing for the people of Keighley and I will continue to do so. The residents of Keighley deserve nothing but the best from Keighley Town Council. I am not afraid of speaking up for what is right and will always have the electorate’s best interests at heart.
Before I became a councillor, I often attended council meetings as an observer to see how things were being done for the town, I have regular contact with the community and would always welcome any concerns they may have, not only in my ward but also in Keighley in general.
Keighley Town Council and its residents can have a town and a council to be very proud of and, I strongly believe that if residents are encouraged to take an interest and become active in community projects, we can leave a positive legacy for future generations.
