I live in West Parley and I am married with three sons and three grandchildren who live locally. I am employed as a site manager for Epiphany Academy. I have lived in Bournemouth for 32 years and I am originally from the Midlands. I have experience of managing a large Primary School site and manage a team of cleaners and maintenance workers. My work involves working closely with the headmaster and governors of the school to negotiate contracts for work needed by the school. I can bring these negotiating skills to my council work. I am able to communicate with all people on all levels and build relationships. I would like to give something back to the local community of West Parley and have a say in local issues and decision making for the future of our children and grandchildren.
