Ward 1 - Musselburgh
I spent sixteen years between, 1986 and 2002, working for the Libraries' Service in East Lothian; and, although I moved away to work elsewhere, I chose to return to East Lothian when I retired. I have been back living in Musselburgh since July 2021.
During my career, I focused particularly on supporting adults with Literacy and Numeracy issues. This, along with offering computer classes, was important in allowing everybody to access and assess information for themselves.
Since moving to Musselburgh, I have tried to get involved in local life. As well as joining, and making regular use of, the local Library and Sports Centre, I have become a Walks Leader for Paths for All, helping to lead short walks for those wishing to start getting out and about again - particularly post-COVID. I have also taken an interest in the Musselburgh Conservation Society and the latest proposals for the Flood Prevention Scheme.
