Clerk to the Parish Council from May 2017.
I hope that writing this will be easier than finding a half-decent photo from our family photos. Many are of me eating food, drinking wine, posing with my family pulling silly faces while I try to take a ‘sensible’ picture. In others, I’m at a potter’s wheel (you can see only half of my face) or in cycling gear (you wouldn’t really know it was me). So here is a fresh one from my home office desk in Minster Lovell – the view from my window is directly east (St Mary’s Church spire in Witney and Wytham Woods in the distance).
The various unsuitable photos do however paint a picture of me. My husband and I have two children – Jack aged nearly 13 and Jessica aged 10. I enjoy baking, cycling in our beautiful countryside and gardening in my spare time. I’ve been working for 12 years as a qualified Clerk to Minster Lovell Parish Council, which I will be leaving to work for your Parish Council and be a part of your community. I am a member of Minster Lovell Playing Field Trust who own and manage a play area behind the Village Hall. We are currently organising the installation of replacement play equipment for young children and have nearly all of the £27,000 needed. We anticipate the project will be completed this summer.
I am very fortunate to have a job that offers great variety. I enjoy working in the area of planning and I know Eynsham has challenges ahead in this. Community projects such as Wharf Stream Way, which Rachel has taken part in, are particularly rewarding and I look forward to becoming involved in future projects. Thank you to all those who have already made me feel welcome and I look forward to seeing you around Eynsham soon.
