Tell us about your role and volunteering experience at Radio Horton:
I am joint secretary and support the committee along with Sharon who shares the role with me.

Between us, we book rooms, send out documents for meetings, take minutes at meetings and contribute to discussions. I also help at outside events, which is fun!

I love most jazz. I remember being captivated
seeing Stan Tracy and Art Theman playing at a
village venue in the early 90’s. It was so
unexpected; and Norma Winston at the Oxford
Jazz Festival in 2011 with Klause Gesing and
Glauco Venier. Sublime!
