North Yard Community Trustees
For the last 12 years I have been very much involved in the Barne Barton community, I have built a shop and negotiated a profit share from its occupiers the Co-operative which are used to benefit the community as well as creating a successful and self sustaining community facility and social enterprise. Tamar View Community Centre is one of a few organisations which does not seek revenue funding and actually invests in its community. I have established a church, a parent & toddler group, a work club and until recently been involved in the provision of a Money Advice service on the estate.
I believe that my skills are useful to the trust and my local knowledge of the communities needs is excellent
I am the Chair of NYCT. I have been on the board since the Trust was formed and I represent Barne Barton. I have lived in the catchment area of NYCT all my life and I am very active within the local community. I sit on the Boards of several organisations in the area. These vary from maternity through to adults and that enables me to have a broad view and opinion of what is happening in our area. I have organised and run many large community events as well as helping organise smaller craft fayres and events. I have 5 children which keeps me active as well in the community.
I have lived in St Budeaux for the last 14 years. I have a good background of working with people and have helped organise and run a lot of community events; I currently work in a nursery. I have 3 children who all attend varies groups and clubs and this keeps me active with the community and their needs.
I have lived in the Kings Tamerton area for 17 years. I am currently studying at university for a Mathematics with Finance degree with a hope to become an accountant in the future. Being a part of the NYCT has given me the opportunity to become more involved within the community that I live in.
