I have lived in Quorn all my life, our family going back several
generations on my father's side. I went to St. Bartholomews
School (now the old school building) and later Rawlins.
I am married to Bill and have two grown up children Mark and
Aimee. My faith in God is the driving force in my life. I was
an active member of Quorn Baptist Church and was a Play Group
Leader there, a job I greatly enjoyed until twenty two years
ago when I became ill with ME.
I designed and planted the War Memorial Garden and have maintained
it for the past seventeen years. I was also approached by the
Parish Council and asked to give a planting plan, source the
plants and oversee the planting of the Sensory Garden on the
Stafford Orchard which I also looked after for three years.
My father Peter Gamble is a very keen naturalist and it would
be hard growing up with a father so devoted to nature conservation
without being interested in it yourself, so my main interests
on the council are conserving the small amount of green spaces
we have left within the village. I'm very pleased that the Parish
Council purchased Tom Long's Meadow and think its development
will be a hugh benefit to wildlife within the village and a
lovely peacefull spot to sit and listen to the birds and watch
I'm also interested is maximising the beauty of the cultivated
areas within the village to make them beautiful to look at and
also good for wildlife, the two are not mutually exclusive.
I entered our village into Britain in Bloom this year.
