Louisa came to Northumberland from Leicestershire in 2000, living in Riding Mill until moving in Corbridge in 2015.
Louisa was a magistrate from 2001 until she retired in 2011, serving as Chairman of the Bench for some of this time. She has also served on a number of committees, most recently as a Trustee of Tynedale Hospice at Home for three years during a demanding period for the Hospice of reorganisation, expansion and development of services. She is also a volunteer reader for Tynedale Talking Newspaper and Tynedale Talking Magazine.
Louisa personally understands the vital role Hexham General Hospital plays in the community, and how fortunate Tynedale residents are to have such a high-grade facility locally providing a wide range of care.
