I have done voluntary work for the National Childbirth Trust and the Friends of Upton Primary School where I was chairperson for 3 years. I am a committee member of the Hot Peppers WI. I joined the Council in 2015 and believe that I can make a difference - one of my priorities is to help make our park a better place for the people and visitors of Upton.

My ambition is to improve facilities for the disabled and the elderly to enjoy the same services as everyone else in the town especially for them to have the opportunity to attend Council meetings and have their say in matters pertinent to their needs."

7 Queens Mead,
Upton upon Severn,
WR8 0ND

"Upton is a town that punches above its weight. It is a go-to riverside experience with a multitude of retailers and a hospitality sector that is unparalleled. Its festivals have a world-wide following. I want to support progress to continue this focus. I moved to Upton in 2002 and after the floods of 2007 I helped form Upton Flood Forum to lobby the Environment Agency to secure the flood defences we now have. My background is as a journalist and editor with a wider background in public affairs and commercial public relations. I am also a vice present of Upton Rugby Club."

"My family and I moved to Upton-upon-Severn in 2011 having spent some time in London. I am Worcestershire born and bred and indeed my paternal ancestry hail from Castlemorton. It is important to me to retain those traditional links but I also believe in working towards the future because I consider the consequences of what we do now lie with the next generation. I am trained as a Lloyd’s of London insurance underwriter and also manage various family property interests. Therefore I take a keen interest in financial and planning related matters which will hopefully mean I can serve our community effectively."

9 Waterside,
Upton upon Severn,
WR8 0JD

"I have lived in many areas of Worcestershire since 1967. My husband and I moved to Upton in 2018 having visited Upton on many occasions and enjoyed all that Upton has to offer. I am a traditionalist at heart and I feel very passionate about keeping the values and traditions of Upton alive whilst at the same time looking forwards and supporting future generations by helping to ensure that Upton is a safe and pleasant place to live. It is important to me that Upton residents feel proud of where they live because although Upton is a small town it has a worldwide reputation as a warm and welcoming community. I have a keen interest in the outdoors having walked every footpath in a 20 mile radius of Upton so Open Spaces is one of the areas I shall focus on together with Finance and Assets."
