Greatest achievement being a Mum: Have learnt so much and enjoy teaching them. During my career: have worked across many services, have developed passion for society, communities and our planet. Especially my part and the part others play in making it a good place to live and nurture our children.
4. What aspirations do you have for The Co-operative?
I have great aspirations for my family and its own future, but this would be very lonely without our neighbours, friends, local businesses and organizations. I would envisage many people feeling the same about their families and to all be a part of a greater group, sharing a future and time together. Encouraging others to become a part or even to feel the same about their families is something special.
