|I have lived in Whitegrove since 2009 and was co-opted to the Parish Council in March 2017. I am married and have two primary school aged children. In my spare time, I play hockey for Sonning HC and enjoy walking and cycling.
My motivation for becoming a Parish Councillor is to help to retain, develop and enhance local facilities and services, in particular green spaces, so that Warfield continues to be a great place to live and bring up children. I work as a primary school head teacher and I hope that my professional skills and experience are useful to the council in its work.

|Vision for Warfield:
As Warfield grows, it will be important that green space is protected and that amenities and infrastructure develop alongside the new housing. This should include new community/leisure facilities, local shops and access to good schools and healthcare.
Warfield needs to continue to offer a good mix of housing, including some that is affordable to buy or rent so that young people can stay in the area.
I want Warfield to be a safe place to live and for people from all backgrounds and cultures to feel welcome. I believe that it's part of the Parish Council's role to ensure that all residents - and particularly new ones - feel part of and engaged in, their local community.
