Cathryn Brickley moved to Southrop in 2007 with her husband Peter. They have two grown-up daughters, who live in London and Surrey, and two golden retrievers who appreciate the lovely local walks! Cathryn taught at the village school for 10 years from 2008 until retiring in 2018 and was also a school governor for most of that time. Cathryn and her husband have always played an active part in village life, involved in the village fete, the litter pick and fund-raising events for the village hall. They care deeply about the future of Southrop and are concerned about the threat of the decline of rural communities in general.
With this in mind, Cllr Brickley has taken on responsibility for the development of a Parish Plan. Please contact the Clerk for more information, or if you would like to be involved.
