I have lived in Perry for over two years and very locally for ten years before that. I think Perry is a beautiful village with a lovely community spirit, lots to offer and a great place in which to live. I have joined the Council in the hope that I can help maintain Perry’s lovely village ethos and keep it the peaceful, friendly place that it is. Having retired in December of last year I now help at Riding for the Disabled two mornings a week.

I have lived in the village for over ten years and decided to become a councillor to be a part of what goes on within Perry.  Believe it or not being a councillor is enjoyable, meeting residents and helping make improvements where we can. Perry is a lovely, happy place and, as a result my family and I love living here.

I was involved in sorting out the village defibrillator which was bought by the parish council, this is sited at the Wheatsheaf pub.  As a result of being on the Tri-village group a document has been created from this which is being used in Cambridgeshire.  There are many super facilities we appreciate in the village and benefit from using them on a regular basis.  I am happy to hear from residents to help with village matters.

I have lived in Perry since 2021 and have loved being part of a vibrant and active community.

Having worked in the NHS all of my life, I am used to change and the need to move things forward in a timely manner.

Since retiring last year, I have tried to become more involved in our lovely village.

I am a member of the Perry WI, a former School Governor, a volunteer reader, and a member of our local events planning group.

Joining the Parish Council  was a natural step forward in my desire to support a  Community, and to bring ideas locally to fruition.

You will often see me out and about with my little Spaniel dogs.

Do stop and say Hello.
