Joan has lived in Surrey for 40 years, the last
15 as a Busbridge resident. Quite a contrast to growing up on a
Northumberland hill farm, where she attended local grammar school
before gaining a degree in economics at Manchester.
Joan took early retirement from a successful insurance career in the City in order to give something back, recognising that as part of a privileged generation there is a responsibility to help others. This has led to a variety of voluntary roles, from an orphanage in Nepal to dog walking for elderly local residents.
Joan gains particular satisfaction from her work with Citizens Advice. She is also on the committee of Busbridge Village Hall and treasurer of Busbridge Duplicate Bridge Club.
Apart from bridge, Joan’s main interests are travel and the arts. She is divorced with one adult son.
