Treasurer & Interim Chair
I am a retired school teacher although after university I did spend several years in Youth Work and then moved into the steel construction industry for a while before teaching finally caught up with me. I am married with three children and five grandchildren.
I have been involved in several charities and am currently a trustee of four. Over the years I have often served as treasurer within those charities. In October 2015, I was asked to come onto the board of developmentplus as a treasurer.
I enjoy watching live football and cricket and quite enjoy long walks.
I am a solicitor in the Legal Department at Lincolnshire Co-op, and I serve on the Board of Trustees under the Co-op staff volunteering scheme, which encourages us to volunteer for local charities and community groups. I provide support on legal matters to the Board and staff. I was one of the original Board of Trustees who set up the charity in 1996, and at that time I was a representative of the Church of England in Lincoln (I am now a member of St Swithin’s Church in Lincoln). I left the Board in 1999 shortly before my younger daughter was born, and I returned to the Board in 2012. I am keen to see closer links between charities and community groups in the Lincoln area and I am promoting these links via my church connections. I am committed to supporting developmentplus as I believe it plays an important role in working alongside people in the community to improve their lives.

I have previously worked in the Voluntary Sector for 7 years , before spending the next 15+ years involved in delivery and leadership within local government. My experience is in strategic corporate policy as well as direct operational service delivery, which include balancing priorities within a context of resource streamlining. This has been gained within a complex mix of regeneration, funding delivery Programmes (both national and European) and community development services.
