I have lived in St Anne’s on The Sea all of my life. My family of James, three children (Sonia, Rosemarie and David) and four grandchildren (Emma, Jack, Kurtis and Jordan) all live locally. I went to two local schools, St Thomas’s and Elmslie. Taught by a local Teacher (Muriel Bury) my childhood and adult years were taken up as a dancer in all the local Operatic/Pantomime Societies in the many beautiful, local venues, some sadly not around anymore.
Later working for over 28 years at the Premium Bonds site on Moorland Road and latterly at the National Savings Office at Marton, I retired 11 years ago and still teach all forms of Aerobics at a local, family run hotel.
Some years ago I became involved with the development of 111 new homes at Heyhouses for New Fylde Housing. I am a Board Member of NFH and work very closely with the Management to ensure that all residents are part of a close Community. I am Chair of the Police and Community Together (PACT) and Co-ordinator of the Neighbourhood Watch where I live.
I am thrilled and honoured to be elected as a new Borough and Town Councillor taking over from Keith Hyde on his retirement and will endeavour to keep St Anne’s on The Sea and Heyhouses Ward as great as it is and will be for the future of many generations to come.
