Meet The Trustees
I am a businessman by background and have developed and grown a variety of companies, particularly in IT, property and hospitality. I have also helped lead a variety of charities, was a school governor and served on Elim's management Board. I was trained and served for many years as a Lay Reader in The Birmingham Diocese and served on PCC's. I was the lay leader of the Elim Church in Ledbury for several years. I am the Chair of Trustees for LEAF.
I am the County Ecumenical Officer working part-time for Churches Together in Herefordshire and living in Hereford with husband Paddy. I used to be a primary school teacher and have 3 grown up children. I enjoy supporting, working with and championing anywhere churches and Christians are working together towards God's Kingdom. I am excited about the work already done and the opportunities possible with LEAF.
Having worked in primary education for over 40 years both as a class teacher and a headteacher I have a keen interest in seeing children flourish and am excited at the prospect of being able to support LEAF as it works with the young people in the town. Away from school I have led the Baptist church for nearly 20 years and am delighted that this has afforded me the opportunity to serve as an ex-officio trustee.
