Retired Aircraft Engineer 

Moved to Wacton during the summer of 2014 to enjoy the quiet country lifestyle.

My wish is to increase the beauty and harmony within the Village.

I do however suffer with FND  (look it up), so although you may see me working around the village for short periods on my ‘good’ days. On my ‘Not so nice’ days, you will not see me. ( A reason as to why some jobs may take more time to complete.)

I have lived in the village since 2019 and love the community we have here. I live on The Common with my husband Jamie and our dog who is our baby. We were both born in Norfolk, myself growing up in Hethersett and Jamie in North Norfolk. We love the countryside and the peace and tranquillity we have in our lovely village. 

Together with our family, we run a hog roast and BBQ catering business, helping people celebrate a whole host of occasions.

Both myself and Jamie enjoy walking across The Common with the dog, he can be stubborn (the dog that is!!) with when and where he walks, please feel free to say Hi and give the dog loves if you see us out and about in the village!

I've been a resident of Wacton for almost 25 years, and a member of the Parish Council for just over 2 years.  I value the sense of community we have, and enjoy taking an active roll in village events. I'm always happy to be a "pair of hands" when needed.

Passionate about the environment, in her spare time she can be found walking the paths of south Norfolk with her dog, or in her pottery studio.

We still have vacancies for Parish Councillors.

The Role of a Councillor


They are elected to represent the interest of the local community as a whole and promote a harmonious local environment. The number of elected Councillors depends on the size of the area, in Wacton we are able to have 7 Councillors.


Local Councils are the first tier of governance and are the first point of contact for anyone concerned with a community issue. They are democratically elected local authorities and exist in England, Wales and Scotland. The term 'Local Council' is synonymous with ' Parish Council, 'Town Council' and 'Community Council'.


Local Councils are made up of locally  elected Councillors. They are legally obliged to hold at least four meetings a year.  Most meet on a monthly cycle to discuss council business and hear from local residents.  District and County Councillors regularly attend parish meetings and report at the Annual Parish meeting. Councillors are expected to attend meetings on a regular basis.​

Councillors must abide by a Code of Conduct, a set of rules on how Councillors are expected to behave. They must also declare their financial interests in the parish, details of which are kept by the District Council in the Register of Councillors' Interests
