Tracey Coulson has lived and worked within the West Lindsey district for over 40 years; her parents moving here when she was just 9 years of age from Gloustershire, to further their family business. Tracey grew up talking to and working with the general public as the family business grew. School holidays very much focused around ‘helping out’. Be that answering the phone, taking messages or running errands as a child.
Tracey attended schools at Marton, and Lincoln leading to her attending university in Nottingham resulting in a BA(Hons) degree. After a period of time running her own business, Tracey returned to the family home to commence more intensive training to eventually take over the role she now holds as Company Director. The family own and run The Elms Retirement Village in Torksey, a residential community for people over 50. Running a small community has proved extremely rewarding for Tracey, who enjoys working with residents of The Elms, to create a place that they can all be proud of. Tracey is particularly proud of the various workshops and activities that she organises every year for the residents of The Elms and wider community, helping to bring people together, introduce new ideas, and promote the learning of new skills. Tracey has a wealth of business and practical management experience; a solid combination of business and social skills.
Married with one son, Tracey has an interest in alternative health practises and in her spare time has trained in Massage and Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy and taken studies in herbal and hedgerow medicine. With a love of the outdoors, Tracey likes nothing more than to be out and about taking photographs, another passion of hers.
Always one to offer a helping hand, Tracey has taken on many volunteer roles over the years, for example at her son’s football and sailing club and at school with the PTA.
Tracey has organised, hosted and participated in many charity fund raisers over the years for such great causes as MacMillan, Air Ambulance, Help for Heroes, Jeans for Genes and many more. A recent funding activity for a local school led to Tracey being invited to talk on Radio Lincolnshire on the subject of school funding.
Tracey looks forward to deepening her knowledge of her local community residents, their needs and supporting them in achieving the right results for them.
Tracey was elected in the local elections of 2019 uncontested.
