Chulmleigh and Landkey
I'm very glad of the opportunity to represent the Labour Party in the forthcoming County Council Elections.
I have lived in North Devon since 1975 and was a Primary School teacher until my retirement in 2008. I taught in Barnstaple, Bideford, Lynton and finally in Braunton where I worked for 20 years. I am married to Mark and we both delight in the outstanding natural beauty of North Devon and because it is such a privilege to live here, I am a passionate environmental campaigner.
Climate change is the most pressing issue facing us all and as your County Councillor I will promote environmentally sustainable practices and policies in Devon with the aim of reducing carbon emissions towards a target of net zero by 2030.
It is vital that as we rebuild our local economy after Covid, we ensure that our rural communities are not forgotten and that there is renewed support for our villages, our farmers and local small businesses.
