Vanessa was a primary school teacher but retired to focus on her Council work. Previously Vanessa has been Deputy Leader of the Conservative Group and the Cabinet Member for Children, Families and Schools, as the committee was previously called. She is a Trustee of the Brighton and Hove Educational Trust Fund, a Member of the Goldstone Valley Residents Association, Treasurer of Friends of Hove Park and a Member of Friends of the Three Cornered Copse.
Vanessa has always lived in Hove. She is married with three grown-up sons, who were all educated locally. She joined Hove Borough Council in 1995 and has been a Brighton and Hove Councillor ever since.
During the Conservative administration of the Council, Vanessa set up the Childrens Trust Board, which was the first time that outside stakeholders had taken part in the committee system for Children, Families and Schools. They have all continued to work closely with the Council to the benefit of the children in the City. Vanessa also set up the two academies that we have in the City.
Vanessa would like to be remembered as a Councillor who always worked to represent her residents and for her contributions to making Brighton and Hove the best place for children to grow up in.
