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. Prior to my nomination to the Board, I previously volunteered as a Warden for the Trust for a number of years, which gives me a real insight into the work of the Trust and of the issues surrounding managing and conserving such a significant area of land.
Until 2018 I worked within Local Government, within the heritage and environmental sectors across Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Warwickshire. I am currently Parish Council Clerk to Powick, Martley, Clifton-upon-Teme, Kenswick & Wichenford, North Bromyard Group and Acton Beauchamp Group parishes. I am also an independent Funeral Celebrant and Burial Ground Manager for Malvern Wells Cemetery and Martley Countryside Burial Ground.
In my spare time I enjoy walking my dogs on the Hills and commons together with restoring and re-upholstering furniture.
