Ibis Channel (Independent)

From material published for the May 2003 election...

" About me - I am 56, divorced with 5 children. I have lived in Greatford since 1970 and I love my village and the surrounding area. I am a part-time care worker and an aerobics teacher and I enjoy all aspects of country life. In the past I have been a school governor and PTA chairman. I have served on the Greatford parish Council for nearly 24 years.

To me, listening to my consituents, common sense and the needs of the community are more important than acting within the confines of party politics. These are the reasons that I stand as an independent.

I have served this Ward for the past 4 years, always trying to maintain an effective link between my consituents and SKDC - this contact I consider to be my prime role. I have endeavoured to keep abreast of local issues by regular attendance at Parish Council meetings.

I accept that change in our area is inevitable but it is of paramount importance that such change should not take place without due consideration to your needs and wishes as a member of the local population. "
