I joined the council in 2011, with the intention having a positive influence within our community. Broughton is a great place to live and work, keeping Broughton great but at the same time looking for ways to improve things is my driving aim.
In May 2018, it was an honour to be elected Mayor, this has given me new energy and drive to see Broughton improved even further, and I looking forward to working with some of the groups within Broughton to make this happen.
I joined Broughton Town Council in 2010. I am also a North Lincs Councillor and along with my colleague Cllr Ivan Glover I represent the Broughton and Appleby ward which includes, Broughton, Wressle, Castlethorpe, Waters Edge, Roxby cum Risby, Dragonby, Santon, Clapp Gate and Appleby. I chair the North Lincs Health Scrutiny Panel and I am a ‘Lead Member for Young People and Skills’ at North Lincolnshire Council.
I joined the council in 2009, my aim was to help make Broughton a better place to live, was elected to be mayor in 2011, re-elected in 2012. Same year became Chairman of our Village hall. Was instrumental in finding a site for the new Broughton community Library, which I opened with Andrew Percy in 2012, also one of the first library volunteers which I still do. Was re-elected as Mayor again in 2015 which as been an honour and privilege to perform.
I have been a resident of Broughton since meeting my husband Peter over 25 years ago.
I was employed by Humberside County Council and then North Lincolnshire Council eventually become a Senior Engineer (Highways) before having to take early retirement in 1999 due to injury and ill health.
