I am a Teacher specialising in teaching students who exhibit challenging behaviour. I have lived on Trenchard Close for 19 years. I have a daughter who has recently started University. I also have a dog that most days you will see me walking.
My interests on the Parish Council are Communications and the Play Area, as I want everyone to know how hard we are working behind the scenes to make Newton a enjoyable fun place to live.

As a Parish Councillor I am more than happy for people to speak to me and to express their point of view. Because it is you the parishioners I represent.

Yvonne moved to Nottinghamshire in 2000 and has lived in Newton with her husband Paul since late 2013.
A Business Continuity and Crisis Management professional with a breadth of industry sector experience spanning over 20 years, Yvonne has regularly attended Parish Council meetings with her husband as a member of the public and was appointed as a Councillor in April 2018.
Outside of Parish Council matters, Yvonne is also Editor of the One Newton newsletter and in June 2018, along with a group of supporters, launched the first annual ‘Right up your StreetFest’ event in Newton aimed at bringing the community together, which raised money for two fantastic local charities and residents agreed was a great success.
