Cllr Lesley Woakes

Cllr Lesley Woakes

Lesley grew up in Minchinhampton and went to school in Stroud before entering nursing.

A 42 year NHS career took her from training in Cheltenham to midwife and health visitor, then clinician and senior management for a Clinical Commissioning Group in the Midlands before she returned to live in St Chloe in recent years.

Lesley was co-opted onto the parish council because she wanted to be able to contribute to the vibrant and positive local community, and to ensure that everyone continues to have such a wonderful place to live.
