The following Trustees were elected at the Jul 2016 Elections.
The Trustees have publicly stated that they have no intention of profiting or using their position as trustee for personal gain. They pledge to serve in the spirit of volunteering for the good of the Island.
I moved to Enfield Island Village in 2007 because I liked the way of life it had to offer my children and me. I described the Island to my friends as a lost jewel in the crown, and persuaded one of them to view a property which he subsequently bought because of its surroundings. For a long time life on the Island lived up to my expectations, but recently I have become concerned that, despite my efforts to prevent it, this will not continue. I want to do something about that, which is why I stood for election as a Trustee.
I have been living in Enfield Island Village for over three years now, and happy as I have been in general over that time, I am becoming more and more concerned about the future prospects for the upkeep of the Island’s shared amenities and the welfare of its community. I believe that by becoming a member of the Island’s Board of Trustees I can help to improve this situation for the benefit of all Island stakeholders.
I am a Chartered Management Accountant and work as a consultant in the health sector. I have 20 years’ experience of working in senior management and board level. During this time I have worked for the NHS, Ernst and Young and independent private sector companies. I have a special interest in corporate governance and audit and have served on audit committees in the NHS as well as leading on charitable accounts for a number of health charities.
I am an Exams Officer at a sixth form college in east London, and have worked in further education since 2003, having previously managed a photographic retail store. I am also undertaking a Foundation Diploma in Public Services Management.
My previous involvement in youth work currently includes helping with the college’s Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, having previously been in charge of a local Air Scout group for over 10 years.
I moved to the Island a number of years ago with my wife and two children because I felt the island had so much to offer. I am proud to call this place my home and I make the most of all the open spaces and waterways on offer.
