I have a long history with Weston and love being here! I went to Priory School and Broadoak sixth form in Weston before education and wanderlust led me to explore other places.
Over the 20 years spent away, I got an arts degree from Goldsmiths’ College and a PhD in the history of Anarchism, whilst experiencing a variety of towns, cities and even countries in which to live and work. My parents stayed in Weston running a town centre pub and so I made regular visits home until the tides of Weston eventually pulled me back in 2007.
You can find me behind the computer, updating the website and creating socials for Super Culture and maybe spot me out and about in town, catching an image for an event, ready to tell you all about what’s going on. I’m deeply engaged with the local community and have enjoyed being part of many exciting Super Culture projects, including volunteer development, Extraordinary Bodies, Pages of the Sea, Lullaby and Whirligig Festival. I programme SUPER WONDER SHRINE on the High Street – look out for some awesome performances this year.
I am privileged to co-ordinate Culture Makers, an outstandingly friendly group of Weston-based volunteers who help us help put the zing in events all over the town so get in touch with me if you’d like to volunteer!
I love being outdoors and walking is my thing – Worlebury Woods, Sand Bay and Uphill are favourite and most regular haunts. I think my Jack Russell and Cocker Spaniel are grateful for that! I’m a member of the brilliant SuperMares Sea Swimmers and Dippers, who can be spotted in Marine Lake or the sea near the Grand Pier all year round. This year, we launched Super Synchro – that was immense fun to be a part of!
