Welcome to the home page of the Leicestershire High
Having always had a particular interest in small children and child development, I then trained as a Montessori Teacher and started my own Montessori Nursery School at Croxton Kerrial. It later become the first Pre-School in the area to receive Outstanding Ofsted status which it held continuously until my retirement 25 years later. My latest project is a new Cookery School based at Branston.
I have worked with various local charities including the Peter le Marchant Trust, the fundraising committee for a children’s scanner at Queen’s Medical Centre and the Red Cross. I was also District Commissioner for the Belvoir Pony Club and a member of the under 8s Forum for Children in Leicestershire. I have just retired as Chairman of the Parish Council for Croxton Kerrial and Branston.
I was widowed in 2009. My children Laetitia and Ben are both married and work in London as a Head Hunter and Corporate lawyer, respectively.
I love my dogs, horses and all country pursuits and have always been a life time supporter of Leicester Tigers.
I feel immensely honoured to take over this historic role in a County that I have lived in all my life, and love so much. Leicestershire is a truly diverse county and I look forward to learning a huge amount about our communities in the year ahead, while also continuing to support the rural heritage and way of life that is so vital to the make-up of our county.
An enormous amount of excellent work is done by the voluntary sector in Leicestershire, and I hope to meet and support as many charities as possible in my year of office. My particular interest, due to the close involvement of my work with children and child development, is those organisations who are working with children and young people who have become disengaged, and sometimes excluded from the education system. Leicestershire is a truly diverse county and I look forward to learning a huge amount about our communities in the year ahead, while also continuing to support the rural heritage and way of life that is so vital to the make-up of our county.
