I have many years’ experience of volunteering and paid work in the voluntary sector in the UK and New Zealand.
I am a former director of The Arts Poole and director and main organiser of Bournemouth Festival of Words. I organise and run my own creative writing workshops in Poole and have been successfully published in various publications. I have recently taken on the voluntary role of newsletter editor for our local neighbourhood watch.
I worked for Poole CVS for 13 years and this brought me into contact with many organisations and people offering themselves as volunteers.
It is from this background that I hope my role as Co-ordinator will help Ideas2Action to achieve what it sets out to do. To action ideas we have and help to improve the environment or the lives of people living in Dorset.
