I moved to Charvil from London just before my first child was born 3 years ago. We love the sense of community and countryside- it’s a great place to bring up a family, with the added bonus of nearby grandparents!  

I grew up in Lancaster, and after getting a maths degree from Cambridge University, I moved to London to become a Chartered Financial Analyst. I work in climate finance at a large energy company and am passionate about doing what I can to address the climate emergency. I want to become your councillor to meet the needs of residents and the environment - for example by making it easier to walk and cycle between our villages, and helping residents to make their homes more energy efficient. 

I’ve been really impressed by the hard work and dedication of the Wokingham Lib Dem team, which inspired me to get involved to serve the residents in the Thames ward and the most vulnerable in our borough. I have recently joined the Charvil Parish Council, and look forward to working with local people to deliver an even brighter future for our area.

I am Irish but have lived in the Wokingham Borough area most of my life, and have seen the area grow and change. I have run my own business for over forty years, an ambulance service, working with the NHS and private hospitals. I take a keen interest in affairs in the area and have been involved in a wide range of community groups over the years, dealing with, and helping people of all ages. People talk to me regularly about local and national issues and I want to represent them and campaign on their behalf as a councillor to convey their views and concerns to a wider audience .

Being a member of the Liberal Democrat party for many years I am proud of the work that the party carries out in this area . Their caring attitude for vulnerable people, of all ages has left a lifelong memory for me .

Working with the Wokingham Liberal Democrats, whose age range goes from the 20's to the 80's, has broadened my horizons and made me aware of the concerns of various groups including the young, elderly and ethnic minorities. I want to be a councillor so I can address these concerns.

I’ve lived in Wargrave for 10 years and have had a varied career in music photography, sales and marketing, and also as an owner and practice manager of a veterinary clinic. 

When I sold the practice I joined the ‘Lucy’s Law’ campaign against puppy farming and was also a member of APDAWG (All-Party Parliamentary Dog Advisory Welfare Group) at Westminster. Our campaign resulted in new legislation.

I was the sole carer for my father, during his dementia. Following his passing, I resumed my involvement with the Liberal Democrats.

In my spare time I enjoy walking with my partner and dogs, and singing.

I have experience in business ownership and management, in addition to political campaigning, both locally and nationally. If elected, I will represent the Thames Ward community in Wokingham Borough Council and ensure our residents' needs are heard. I’ll be a passionate advocate, giving our local communities a stronger voice, to ensure this remains a great place to live, with a thriving, greener future.
