I am 51 years old and have lived in Abingdon for 6 years. I do not own a car but choose to travel by foot, bicycle and public transport. I'm an active member of community groups in Abingdon including Neighbourhood Friends, visiting a disabled adult every week as a volunteer. I'm the Chair of Abingdon Green Party. I have an interest in the wildlife across Abingdon, and enjoy growing my own organic vegetables, along with plants that attract bees and other insects. I particularly love hedgehogs, regularly feeding them and providing them with homes.
I have campaigned against Abingdon Town Council’s decision to not fly the Rainbow Flag. I'm the Treasurer of the committee organising a Rainbow Flag Day in Abingdon this summer, and is deputy chair of an Oxfordshire campaign to promote and celebrate the diverse groups that make up our community in Abingdon.
