One of the key issues for the PDNPA is that of balancing the needs of our communities, the wildlife and landscape with the enjoyment of our many visitors. So it is a constant concern for the park’s officers and volunteers to manage people’s expectations given the delicate balance. I would bring my energy and enthusiasm for our park in helping to meet this challenge.
For 39 years I’ve been living, running, walking and cycling all across the peak. My career as an IT manager gave me the ability to work well in a team and interact successfully with many other people. Within and around the villages where I’ve lived I have always been heavily involved in the community, helping run village halls, well dressings, stewarding at shows and leading a walking for Health group, which will help me to represent all of our residents, businesses, farmers and visitors.
