General Governor, Board of Trustees

“My family and I moved to Letchworth eight years ago and have immersed ourselves in all aspects of the Garden City, especially its vibrant arts and cultural scene. I am particularly interested in Letchworth’s journey in the next 50 years and how it can become a sustainable Garden City with good quality, affordable homes.

I’m keen to explore how we can work with the community to ignite the passion that filled Letchworth in those early years through its people, spaces and buildings.

I'm interested in the concept of developing Letchworth to become the Sustainable Garden City for the future, ensuring we have good quality, architecturally designed and affordable accommodation for a growing and diverse population."
