I am delighted to be a member of the MHT Board as I have grown up within the catchment area of the Malvern Hills and continue to live and work within close proximity of them. I am nominated as the Worcestershire County Council parish representative for Powick, where I have been Parish Council Clerk since 2001. Until my nomination to the Board, I have also volunteered as a Warden for the Trust for a number of years, which gives me a real insight in to the work of the Trust and of the issues surrounding managing and conserving such a significant area of land.
My working life until 2018 has been within Local Government, mostly within the tourism and heritage sectors across Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Warwickshire. Since then I have concentrated on Parish Council work and am currently Clerk to Powick, Martley, Clifton-upon-Teme, North Bromyard Group and Lower Sapey parishes. I am also Burial Ground Manager for Malvern Wells Parish Council.
