First Elected::
19 May 1995
I was first elected as a Repton Ward Councillor in 1995, then was successfully re-elected in 1999, 2003 and 2007 with an increased majority on each occasion. The Ward now includes Bretby, Newton Solney, Repton, Milton, Foremark, Ingleby and Stanton-by-Bridge. Living in Bretby with husband Bob and 21 year old daughter Harriet, I have a good mix of the problems that South Derbyshire residents put up with, including traffic, access to services etc. Whilst strongly representing Repton Ward with co-Councillor John Bladen, my interests include affordable housing, economic regeneration schemes and National Forest projects. The retention and protection of quality farmland and countryside is my priority and I believe developing the economic strength of South Derbyshire is important but should not be achieved 'at any price'. If you need advice or help, I am available for surgeries at the monthly Parish Council meetings held at Newton Solney and Repton and quarterly in Bretby. Alternatively, please contact me as detailed above. We want to see South Derbyshire cleaner, greener, safer, and run at less cost to the taxpayer.
