Maureen Palmer


Maureen was brought up and educated in the small village of Guston in Kent. On completing her education she began her working life in the Women's Royal Army Corps. After nine years at a research establishment, usually causing explosions, she became involved in the welfare of soldiers and their families.

After seventeen years service in the armed forces she established, with her husband, a farming business on the east coast of Lincolnshire at North Somercotes. Having two children led Maureen to become involved in numerous local organisations and serve as a Governor of a local school for sixteen years. This enthused Maureen with a passion for children's education, their welfare and development. Maureen currently works at a local secondary school.

In my time I have also supported my partner in his involvement as a district and county councillor, giving her a great insight into local government and the needs of local people and the community as a whole.

Since moving to Cherry Willingham I have become a regular walker on the health walks and a member of Cherry Willingham Parish Council.

Maureen is passionate about the environment, maintaining & improving our area and wants to protect our communities from unsuitable development.
