Hannah is a passionate, popular and dedicated community campaigner. She became involved in local politics after feeling that the voices of women and parents were being left out of conversations about issues that directly affected them. She is keen to diversify politics and to encourage everyone to have their say.
Hannah has lived in Faversham with her husband since 2010 and they have two primary aged children. Hannah is an award-winning business owner as well as a bar manager turned volunteer coordinator. She previously studied Archaeology and Classical History at the University of Reading.
In May 2019 Hannah was elected to both Faversham Town Council and Swale Borough Council where she is the Deputy Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing. Hannah is an ardent campaigner on the environment and Vice-Chair of Faversham Town Council’s “Climate and Biodiversity Committee”. Hannah has pressed both Swale and Faversham Councils to declare Climate Emergencies since being elected in May.
Hannah is a passionate animal rights campaigner. Until recently she volunteered at a local animal rescue. She often speaks to local groups about animal welfare and about reducing our impact on animal suffering through making simple changes in our lifestyle.
Hannah hopes to bring some kindness and empathy back into politics, qualities which are desperately lacking today.
