I have lived in Beaminster for forty three years, before that I lived in Farnham Surrey. I did an apprenticeship at 43 Command workshops R.E.M.E as a civilian and continued to work when the apprenticeship was complete until I moved to Beaminster.
I was working at ECC Quarries until they closed down then went to Brit Marine for two years. I then got a job at Westland and I was there for 33 years. I was a shop steward for 25 years, a senior health and safety rep and was on the Works Committee as senior steward for 6 years. I took early retirement 5 years ago.
We have 2 children and 3 stepchildren all went to both Beaminster schools . I have now been co-opted on to Beaminster Town Council and feel very proud to be a Member and hope to do my best for the people of Beaminster.
