I was born in Sproston and have lived and worked here all my life helping my family run Dairy House Farm. We now have some 200+ head of Fresian cows which have to be milked twice a day.
Following my Father I have been a Councillor since the inauguration of the Parish Council, from knowledge gained from him I have an in depth understanding of planning laws which I hope have been useful to the council. I hope to stay on the council for many more years.
My other interest, when time permits, are judging cattle at shows, trying to improve the farm and the welfare of my animals and doing my best for our village.
I have lived in Sproston for just over 12 years with my husband Rick. My husband and I grew up in Derbyshire and through work lived in various parts of England and Wales. I was keen to join the Parish Council to do more for the local community where I live.
I am currently employed in local government and aware of the immense change taking place locally and regionally through key agendas such as devolution and the immense pressure on budgets and resources on services such as NHS and social care.
When relaxing my interests include travelling, cycling, rugby union, gardening, performing arts and photography
