I am retired and have lived in Great Ashby since 1999. I was one of the founder members of the Great Ashby Community Group back in 2004 until the Community Council was formed in 2011. I presently Chair the Highways & Grounds Maintenance Committee which deals with the condition of the roads and liaising with the District Council, overseeing the maintenance of the playgrounds and the park. Over the years I have served on the Centre Management Association, helped set up Circles coffee bar and organised the Fun Days. I was instrumental in arranging for the roundabouts to be planted with colourful plants and also organising for the daffodils to be planted throughout the grass verges in Great Ashby all to add to a brighter environment.
