I was born and raised by the shores of Oulton Broad, and from an early age was fascinated by the vast expanse of marshes which surrounded my home, which was on a hill and afforded magnificent views towards the river Waveney and Burgh St Peter. Indeed, on a clear day one could see as far as the Cantley sugar beet factory! This led to a lifelong love and appreciation of the Broads area.
My career has been a mixture of music and politics. As a classical soprano soloist, I travelled widely throughout Europe, Canada and the USA. During sixteen years as a member of Waveney District Council, I served on many outside bodies concerning the Arts, and was chairman of the Planning Committee, always being mindful to ensure the protection of our very special environment.
I hope that with careful nurturing and planning, we can protect and enhance these wonderful landscapes for future generations to enjoy.
