"In 1993 I moved to North Dorset and worked as the county library service's Literature Worker. My passion for the arts led to writing plays for stage, TV and radio and running Writing for Wellbeing projects across the county supporting people with physical, emotional and mental health problems. Moving to Sturminster last March has meant getting involved with the Friends of Stour Connect.
I'm very impressed by the way the charity is growing and am enjoying working on both the charity's governance and its development of arts projects. I love gardening, cooking and spending time with family and friends."
