I have lived in Smarden for 32 years and taught in Ashford schools for many years. My son and daughter were educated locally, and my son recently started a business which is based in Smarden. At present I am the Administrator of Smarden Charter Hall, where I also work in the Heritage Centre.
As the representative for Weald North, it would be my priority to work closely with the Parish Councils of Smarden and Egerton to ensure that local residents have the opportunity to express their wishes concerning any prospective development in their village.
I support the countryside. If elected, I will work for a thriving rural community in Egerton and Smarden and do my utmost to protect the character and quality of life in our rural area. The council tax must represent value for the consumer.
