Anne was appointed Chair at the 2016 AGM and joined MAHM 5 years ago and is passionate that the role of ‘care’ at home is valued. She is keen to see a more just tax system that recognises the family and the role of care, allowing families more of a choice as to how they raise their children.
Anne gave up full time work in publishing after getting married and deciding with her husband that they could not contribute fully to society if they were both working full time.
15 years later Anne has 6 wonderful sons, and has been able to give fully to the family, to the school her sons attend both as Vice Chair and helper in school and to the church running a toddler group and starting a fencing club for children.
She has been involved locally, campaigning for renewal of boarded up playgrounds, running a street Christmas market, has been part of a team trying to set up a primary school, and attends a local choir.
Anne has a keen interest in philosophy and economics and runs a political discussion club (Gladstone Club) held at the National Liberal Club. Her other love is dancing!
