    Hopefully you all managed to vote in the recent leadership election. We are glad that we now have a permanent leader in Ed Davey and hope that he can now concentrate on taking the party forward. We know there is national ground to recover and look forward to seeing the party energy revitalised. We were glad to hear that Ed will be launching a national listening programme so voters can tell us what matters to them. Congratulations to Ed!

    I live in the village of East Prawle. My Councillor area covers the Parishes between Kingsbridge and Dartmouth. The duties of a councillor are very varied. They can be rewarding, frustrating, humbling and challenging - usually a mixture of all four. It is very enjoyable. I studied Zoology at Bristol University and am a former science teacher. I now do the accounts for a number of local businesses. My main areas of interest are health, education and the environment (former chair of the Green Lib Dems.) I play cricket for the village, and darts and euchre for the Pigs Nose Inn.

    I was born at Freedom Fields in Plymouth and have lived largely in Yealmpton throughout my life. I spent 10 years working for Plymouth Argyle in Hospitality and Operations Management before becoming the club's General Manager until administration. I then retrained as a primary teacher and have taught in a variety of schools across the district as well as in Plymouth, latterly as a supply teacher, so as to balance work with council duties.

    I previously served as a Liberal Democrat district councillor in Kingsbridge from 2007 to 2011 and really enjoyed representing local people and highlighting their concerns. I live in the town and have two daughters, one of whom is still a pupil at Kingsbridge Community College. My background is in journalism, both at a local and a national level.
