Born and bred Essex publican’s daughter, threw away the stiletto shoes and emigrated to Surrey over 40 years ago!
Proud wife, mother, stepmother and grandmother of several gorgeous young people.
Joined Surrey Chambers of Commerce in 1998 as their first Regional Manager. Working out of the Town Hall in Epsom we formed the Epsom and Ewell Business Partnership and, in a bid to encourage retailers to open their doors on a Sunday, we started the monthly Epsom Farmers’ Market in 1999.
After several happy years with Surrey Chambers of Commerce old age started to catch up and I retired at 62, but carried on managing the three Farmers’ Markets that we had by then. When Surrey Chambers of Commerce re-structured in 2010 it became clear that the markets were not within their scope of expertise so I launched Surrey Markets Ltd.
Currently running at The Heart of Walton, Epsom, Camberley, Cobham and Sandhurst Farmers’ Markets, plus the lovely Friday weekly Traditional Market in Dorking, which I manage on behalf of Mole Valley District Council.
Always looking for further opportunities to bring our Farmers and Producers to other venues in and around Surrey.
