I have lived in Washington all my life and attended High Usworth Infant and Junior Schools (now George Washington Primary) and Usworth Comprehensive.  I have vivid memories of writing practice in junior school being the names of the villages, when most of them were just words; now we have communities around the words.  I have three grown up children and three grandchildren.

 

I have been a school governor since 1991 and decided to become a Councillor because I believe in helping people to make their lives and environment better.  My general interests are around families and ensuring that everyone gets the best opportunities they can, regardless of age.  In my spare time I enjoy being creative, making cards, textiles projects and cake decorating.

  

I hold a Ward Surgery every second Saturday of the month (except August and Bank Holiday Weekends) between 10.00am and 12.00 noon at the Columbia Community Centre, Oxclose Road, Columbia.

As your City Councillor, the council’s data protection policy applies when I am carrying out council business. This explains your data protection rights and who to contact if you have a query about use of your data;  https://www.sunderland.gov.uk/data-protection.

 

When working for you  as your Ward Councillor, I respect your data protection rights and only use the personal data you provide as needed to respond to your enquiries. This can include sharing the information you provide with council officers and other services and organisations so I can get information to reply to you, which might include information about you and your circumstances. I also share information with other Councillors who may be able to help. If you would prefer me not to share your information with a particular person, or organisation please let me know when you contact me.
