Mrs Margaret Cumming

(Vice Chair)

I was born and grew up in Kendal although my Mum’s family are from West Cumbria. I left the north at 18 to train as an Occupational Therapist in Oxford and then moved to London to work in psychiatry where I met my husband. We then became full time adult placement carers and fostered teenagers while also running a church youth club.

 

In 1998 we moved back to Cumbria and live on a smallholding in Kirksanton where we provide holidays for people with disabilities.

My other roles in the community are:

•Treasurer and PCC member for St. Mary’s Church, Whicham.

• Director for Black Combe [ Whicham] Community Interest Company

•Kirksanton Village Hall Committee member

•Silecroft Village Hall Committee member as parish council representative

•Secretary Silecroft W.I.

 

 

 

My interests for our community include:

•Providing accessible community facilities including the outdoor experience for locals and visitors with disabilities.

•Continued development of a range of activities which encourage social, mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing and a sense of community.

•Promotion and protection of the heritage and natural environment of the parish of Whicham.
