It has always been my abiding wish that Radford Semele maintains its status as a ‘village’ and is not absorbed into the surrounding area and I would hope that my contribution to the Parish Council has helped and still is helping us to achieve this.
I was co-opted to the Parish Council a short time after my husband Tony became a Councillor in 2004. I have been on several committees over the past years and have always been on the Planning Committee. Currently I am also the Parish Council representative on the Community Hall Committee.
I moved to Radford Semele in 1990 from Barford.
I worked for many years as a Medical Secretary to one of the Consultants at Warwick Hospital, and latterly set up my own business as a Locum Medical Secretary for General Practice. Ultimately one of the Practices I covered asked me to fulfil a permanent role. I accepted this role and I continued with this until my retirement.
Retirement has enabled me to enjoy many hobbies – and I now understand what retired people used to say to me ‘I don’t know how I ever had the time to work’ !
I am currently in my third year studying Spanish (which is helpful when we holiday at our house in Spain); I have been line dancing for 25 years; I am a member of two choirs (one being the Radford Community Choir); I am a Trustee of the Radford Semele Community Hall Committee and I spend a fair amount of time researching my and my husband’s family history ( we are back to late 1500’s).
