Liz and her family have lived in Haverhill for almost 18 years and in that time have felt so welcomed.

Originally from Grays in Essex, Liz has had a varied career working for a building society, local government and now as a teacher of Maths in offender learning.  As a mother of 2 young children and working full-time Liz undertook an open university degree in the 1990s which led to her change of career into teaching. Now the children are all grown and Liz feels she can give something back to society.

She is a strong advocate for lifelong learning and ensuring that everyone has access to education and the opportunity to learn new skills.  Liz is particularly interested in supporting those with mental health issues and disabilities. She is also branch chair of her union and regularly supports staff in the workplace.

Liz says “I am so proud to be serving my adopted town, which I love, as Mayor over the next year, and look forward to meeting more members of the community and making new friends”
