I’m Alison Darrington – I am a parent governor at Bosmere Primary School. I believe it’s important to take an active part in the community and I wanted to be involved in my children’s education as well, not only to help them progress but also to support Bosmere as much as I can. My two children attend and love Bosmere School.
Work-wise I am a freelance trainer, working with organisations in East Anglia to increase effectiveness and productivity of their customer service, sales and management teams.
I also volunteer for the Needham Market Community Council where I look after the publicity of their Art Exhibition and Craft Fairs.
I enjoy gardening and am trying to persuade my children that planting veg and flowers is more exciting that simply digging large holes and making mud pies.
As a governor I sit on the Finance Committee and I’m responsible for mathematics – highly ironic since this was my weakest subject at school! Yet I’m thoroughly enjoying my role, finding it rewarding and learning a huge amount.
