I have been a tenant in the Holnicote Estate near Exmoor for four years and have spent the past year as the Secretary for the local Tenants Association there. We adore our NT house and the memories it is giving to our young family as they grow but are, like many, struggling with the increases in rent, heating and poor energy efficiency of our home. I believe in working with the NT closely to secure these properties for generations to come.

Alongside my duties as a secretary, I work as part of the executive team at Multi Academy Trust of schools in West Somerset and Clerk the Trustee Board. I greatly enjoy walking my collies among the Exmoor hills and I am a passionate writer. My husband and I moved to West Somerset for a better quality of life from the South East, and my goodness we have found it in spades!
