West Flegg Ward

I am married to Councillor Barry Coleman and we share the responsibility for West Flegg Ward. We moved to Martham in 1973 and have two adult children, Helen and Andrew, both educated at Flegg High School, where I taught until my retirement in April 2007. I retired in order to concentrate on serving as a Borough Councillor. 

I try to attend all the parish council meetings in the ward and work closely with the Parish Councillors and the County Council. Constituents often have queries but I am used to listening to people and will help in any way I can.  I am always happy to approach Borough officers and other organisations on behalf of members of the public. I feel honoured to have represented the Borough as Deputy Mayor – June 2014 to May 2015.  

My other interests include fundraising for St Mary’s Church, Martham,  Inner Wheel Club of Great Yarmouth, Great Yarmouth Stroke Association Support Group, Martham Hand Bell Ringers, Information Technology, Norwich City Football Club, walking, swimming and young grandson Max.
