Anne has recently retired, having worked for many years in the charity sector as Bursar in secondary schools, with a particular interest in finance. She is now involved in various voluntary activities, including the Wycombe Homeless Connection, the Methodist Church’s Strategy and Resources Committee, Westminster College Oxford Trust and the Methodist Academies and Schools Trust. Her personal interests include gardening, chamber music (she plays the viola), and her grandchildren. Anne's husband is partially sighted and an avid consumer of audio-books.
