Hi my name is Bernadette Burns and I have lived in Nailstone since 2007. I did take a short leave of absence for 3 years to take up a position in China, but always kept our home in Nailstone. Recently we moved to the other end of the village to take on a bit of a project and a larger garden (for veg. and chickens – WIP).
I am a Chartered Engineer and currently Head of European Vehicle Engineering for a Global Consultancy with technical responsibilities for Asia and the US.
But first and foremost, I am a Mother to 3 and Nani to 4 little people.
Myself and my husband have greatly enjoyed the time that we have been in the village, and love to walk the surrounding area with our three fun loving dogs.
I am a very good listener and distiller of information, as well as a good Leader, Manager and decision maker. I love to cook and try to be creative, although not always successfully…
I would now like to take the responsibility to represent my fellow villagers in an open and fair way, and give something back to the village and villagers that are now dear friends.
This is why I have decided to put myself forward as a Parish Councillor.
