We moved to Wimborne in 1987 from London – to benefit from the good schools here and I was appointed as a school inspector to Dorset County Council. I am married with three children and live on New Borough Road, near the market. I love living in Wimborne and am very active in the town. I am Chair of Wimborne Community Theatre and have appeared in their productions for over twenty years here. I am also Chair of Governors of a local secondary school and have a strong interest in the local schools in Wimborne.
I was for many years a teacher and then became a school inspector with Dorset County Council and later Chief Inspector in Poole. I now work for HM Department for Education as a senior adviser but do this part-time and often work from home. I keep myself well informed on Wimborne’s developments and am latterly interested in the new housing developments and the fate of the market
What I like about Wimborne is the buzz about the town, the never-ending new developments and the history of an ancient and important landmark. Having researched and performed in over twenty plays about Wimborne with Wimborne Community Theatre, I feel I know a lot about our history, development and current issues. For example, to enliven local debate, I organised a Question Time event at the Allendale Centre. The Tivoli is one of our favourite venues as are many of the restaurants and hostelries!
I am dedicated to what I do and would do my upmost to deal with residents’ concerns and see through appropriate action.
