I graduated in physics in 1977 and initially worked at the Royal Free Hospital in the physics department, after which I trained as an accountant. After working for various enterprises and professional practices I set up Levy & Co in 1989, specialising in business development (the office next to Cavendish House), which I eventually sold in 2008.
I have lived in Lingfield for more than 30 years during which time I was a governor of the local primary school for a number of years. I currently help as a volunteer at the St Peter’s & St James’s Hospice in North Chailey, and have done so for the past three years.
After 22 years in California where I ran a children’s centre, I returned to England in 2002. Newly retired, I started volunteering for the Monica Cantwell Trust and have been involved with them ever since. I have taken Minutes at meetings, help with secretarial work, manage the charity shop and became a Trustee (for the second time) in 2014.
I am also Clerk to Lingfield United Trust, a charity which has almshouses in Dormansland and distributes funds to worthy local cases for assistance.
I am retired now and we moved from Hertfordshire in 2009 to be near one of our sons who lives in Dormansland.
I was educated in Middlesex and did nursing training at Kings College Hospital.
My volunteer work includes Surestart baby clinics, the Cavendish House Trust charity shop and the local school ECO garden.
I am Treasurer of a local WI and am also involved in Dormansland Horticultural Society and related offshoots.
Prior to retirement I was a Financial Administrator but my working life progressed from nursing to wedding caterer to finance.
