I grew up in Menheniot and bar University years have always lived in the village. I attended the school myself several years ago and now both my children are at the school. In 2009 I became a governor as I wanted to give something back to the school and local community that has always helped and supported me. With my children now attending I like to think I am helping make a positive difference to their and the other pupils education. I am Chair of the Finance & Buildings Committee which dovetails with my job as a corporate bank manager. I am therefore in a good position to assist the school with its finances and the ever more challenging task of setting budgets and keeping financial control.
