I have been an active member of the North Lancashire and South Cumbria Area Committee for the past four years, regularly attending Committee and Members’ Meetings and keenly supporting community activities.
I enjoy representing members as an Area Committee member and believe this and the knowledge I have gained will be extremely useful as I seek to continue and develop my contribution to The Co-operative. I have a breadth of experience working in the wider community.
As a native and resident of the area all my life, I have a deep understanding and awareness of its needs and aspirations and the part The Cooperative Group can play in this. I believe I am a careful listener and a good communicator.
As a committed member of The Co-operative Group and also the Co-operative Party, I am keen to see the continued success of The Co-operative. I believe this would lead to further rewards for members, staff and the area’s communities. I regard the Group’s values and principles as extremely important. I hope the Group goes from strength to strength, enabling it to achieve its aims in the community.
