I retired early from GlaxoSmithKline where I worked as a medical rep. I did this to have more time to put into the community and became a councillor for Durrington. I served in that capacity for 4 years. I am now Chair of Worthing West and East Arun Liberal Democrats. I am also chair of Northbrook Neighbourhood CIC which runs the Northbrook Project better known as the home of West Durrington Phoenix Youth Club. I also help out on the board of Phoenix. I worship at Elim Church. I have two daughters and five grandchildren and care about the Northbrook area and this town so I am running for election as councillor in the Northbrook Ward in May.

Thoughts about Brexit

Interesting Thoughts about Brexit “This is an historic moment from which there can be no turning back.” If the second part of the PM’s sentence had been true, there would have been no need to state it.
