ABOUT ME - Interested in politics
since my teens, I was active for 13 years in the ecology
movement, and was involved in various campaigns - e.g.
against dumping of nuclear waste at Fulbeck in
Lincolnshire - and groups. I was co-chair of Sheffield
Green Party, and an active participant, and occasional
session chair, at many national Green Party conferences.
I am not currently a member of a political party.
I currently teach for the WEA (Workers Educational
Association) in Sheffield and the York
area. In Oct. 2004 I took over an existing "Talking Politics"
class. I also teach, or have taught,
"Changing Ourselves, Changing Our World", Aromatherapy,
Looking After Yourself - Holistic Health and Alternative
Therapies, Circle Dance, International Folk Dance, and Drumming.
I am also a self-employed aromatherapist,
Circle Dance teacher and musician. I have the City &
Guilds 7407 Adult Teaching Certificate, and a BA in
