I grew up in a north Shropshire market town not too far from the River Severn and have lived in Thornbury, much nearer the Severn since 1978 with nine years spent in Hertfordshire in between. Thornbury seemed a perfect place to base our family, so we have stayed.

A Chartered Insurer, specialising in employee benefits, with two insurance companies before joining the independent sector. The last 15 years of my career were spent running my own business.

I ‘caught’ Bridge in my 20s and played for Bedfordshire before moving here where the habit continued. I later joined the Chantry Players and continued my drama interest with involvement in both of Thornbury’s Community Plays.

In 2000 I became treasurer and later chair of the Community Association at the Chantry and retain my links there on behalf of the Town Council.
