Emma has been a governor for 7 years within the federation. Emma joined the governors initially as a community governor as a resident of Winscombe. She has always had a vested interest in being involved in the local community so is also one of the Brownie leaders for the 1st Strawberry Line Brownies. As a parent to 3 children at Winscombe Primary School, Emma is also an active member of Winscombe PTFA where she is involved in the summer fete, bonfire, quiz night and other activities to raise money for the children. Some of her proudest moments during this time was being able to raise the money needed to replace the school library and build brand new play equipment in the playground, all things that children will be enjoying for years to come.
