About Me

I have lived in Misterton since 1995. I chose to move to this village in Bassetlaw after training, living, and working in London and Bedfordshire for many years. Moving to the area was like coming home! I was born and brought up in the West Country, in a small rural town, so I was already very familiar with the benefits but also the problems of rural communities: housing, transport, schools, access to top-quality healthcare and leisure facilities, and so on.

I trained as an occupational therapist and spent most of my working life in the NHS, to which I am passionately committed. I have also worked as a photographer and health journalist, and in health public relations. I am now retired after working for Doncaster & Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust for 18 years.

I am a Governor at Misterton Primary & Nursery School, and a Governor of Doncaster & Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals Trust, elected by members living in Bassetlaw. I have close associations with Misterton's Parish Church. For many years, I helped to organise the annual village gala and the annual 'Homes & Gardens' show. 

I am married to Rick: in our spare time, we're cryptic crossword addicts. I try to go running or walking when I can - for three years, I raised money for cancer research by doing Race for Life. More recently, I have done three long-distance walk, raising money for charity.

I have been a parish councillor for more years than I care to remember, and was chairman for nine. This is my second term as a district councillor. I write a newsletter for residents three or four times a year, and have surgeries in Misterton and West Stockwith - so please drop in and say hello!


Councillor Brand is also the Council's Rural Ambassador.
