I have lived in the village for over 24 years, during which I have played an active role in many of the village functions such as the Summer BBQ, the Harvest Supper, Carol Singing and The Village Green Garden. I agreed to join the Parish Council because I felt with my 40 year’s experience of running a local business I could assist with Council matters.
I wish to see the village continue to be a lovely place to live in. I intend to help improve village facilities and to find out, and hopefully assist in providing the other things that the villagers would like to see.
I have served on the Parish Council since Spring 2018. I have run my own soft furnishings business since 1995, and am both an avid dancer (including taking part in a Charity Dance competition in October 2012) and keen horsewoman.
My aim as a councillor is to work closely with the Parish community, focusing on the key issues and ensuring we achieve harmonious outcomes.
I’ve lived in Hardmead since I was born and remember well riding my bike to Astwood as a child to buy toys and sweets at the old Post Office. I’m a farmer and I love old cars that don’t have computers running them!
The position of Parish Clerk is now held by Jane Brushwood - more information to follow.
