My name is Jane, and I am delighted to be working within your Parish, supporting your local Councillors, helping to make where you live a great place to be, great place to raise a family and a great place to retire to. I love being part of a community and I am looking forward to getting to know you all. I have lived in Hampshire for over 20 years, coming here in 2000 to work in Basingstoke. My personal interests are early morning Boot Camp and the gym, cooking, gardening, walking our little dog and crafting. Please say hello next time you see me!
