I have lived in Trevellas for over 33 years.  I have a daughter who lives in Portsmouth with her husband, both working in the dentistry profession.  My son teaches English in North Vietnam.  In 1999, I left the firm of stockbrokers in Truro where I had worked for 20 years to run the farm following the death of my second husband who was a farmer, my first husband having died in 1974 whilst on a lecture tour in Russia.  In 2012 I made the heartrending decision, after 28 years, to give up the sheep, the  bullocks having been sold earlier.  I now have quite a few chickens the eggs from which I sell and use in my small but reasonably successful B & B which I started in 2001.  I like gardening and when asked, decorating/customising cakes in my spare time.

Register of Interests updated 13th April 2015 

  Born in Redruth, I am proud to be Cornish; it is an important part of who I am.  I currently live in St Agnes but have a long term connection with Blackwater.  My parents, Jack and Lorna Symons, held the tenancy at the Red Lion during the 1960s and I met many of the characters of the village.  I attended Blackwater primary school and helped out at Heather Hunt's riding stables at Chiverton (although I haven't ridden for a very long time!)  My father (ex South Crofty and Wheal Jane) was the mining engineer who helped to reopen Wheal Concord in the 1980s and I worked there as the mine secretary.  My son and his family currently live in Blackwater (although, with the boundary changes, it is technically now in Mount Hawke ward).  I work for Truro & Penwith College and am currently the Programme Team Leader for A levels at the Penwith Campus in Penzance.

Living in Goonvrea, St Agnes I am an Industrial Chemist with a technical background in water pollution control and the analysis of water.  Progression to the role of Area Manager meant leading a team of up to 400 with an annual budget of £20 to 30 million. 

My priority for the Parish Council is to achieve and be able to demonstrate the Parish "value for money" when spending your money.  I shall propose to the Council that we do this by using Project Appraisal Procedures and by being open, transparent and consultative when reaching decisions.

Born in St Agnes I lived here for 20 years before taking up a teaching post in Plymouth.  I then changed professions and qualified as a Chartered Surveyor.  I was a partner in a firm in Hayle and Camborne but left to do specialised short term contracts for Councils and Housing Associations.  My last post was Senior surveyor with Plymouth City Council.  4 years ago I had to return to St Agnes due to illness/death of my brother Graham to run the estate agents Lee and Co.  I have since sold this business.  I have tried to be involved in the local community and am now chairman of the St Agnes Carnival Committee, Server at St Agnes Church and a member of the local Rotary Club.
