I have lived in Newtown for over 20 years and I am pleased to have been co-opted onto the Town Council in November 2014 to serve Newtown.
I am a self employed marketing consultant having previously worked for Laura Ashley on the Vastre Estate for many years.
I believe that the Town Council has an important role in bringing people together to preserve and improve local life. Small towns like ours suffer from a challenging retail and business environment - we must learn to adapt and celebrate our uniqueness. We must balance the environment issues and the need to allow easy access into the town.
I hope to play my part in meeting these challenges and to serve Newtown and the area of the town I represent.
