I have been a Trustee of the Trust for the past 15 years, and have been Chair since 2011.
I have lived in Coalbrookdale for nearly 30 years and became a Trustee while serving as Telford & Wrekin Councillor for the Ironbridge Gorge. I have a strong interest in the woodlands and environment of the Gorge, and of wider environmental issues. I served on the Board of the Green Wood Trust before its merger with the Small Woods Association.
I have experience in the Governance of many voluntary and public organisations, including Telford & Wrekin Primary Care Trust, Telford College of Arts & Technology, and Telford Business Link. I currently sit on the Board of Telford & Wrekin Citizens Advice Bureau, and train workers and staff for the organisation at a national level.
I am also involved with several community groups, including Coalbrookdale & Ironbridge Community Centre and Transition Towns Telford
