Judy has lived in the Borough for over 30 years and got fully involved with the Lib Dems in 2015, though she’d been a member for much longer.
She knows Camden pretty well, as she qualified as a Camden Tour Guide in 2016 and leads occasional tours in various corners of the Borough.
Before then, her working life combined accountancy and management in the arts and charities. Her last role was as Director of VocalEyes, an Arts Council-funded organisation making the arts accessible to blind and partially sighted people through words. While the work started in theatre, it spread to all aspects of the arts, and a project close to Judy’s heart was London Beyond Sight, twinning 40 significant Londoners with their favourite London landmark; descriptions were scripted for each and the Londoner then recorded them for public enjoyment on the Vocaleyes website and include Andrew Sachs and the London Zoo, Karl Johnson and the Pineapple pub, Shami Chakrabarti and Hampstead Heath.
Other interests include singing (she has been a member of Highgate Choral Society for over ten years) and learning Italian, a life-long project. She was, until recently, volunteering twice weekly in a couple of Camden’s vaccination centres; the demand for volunteers has now paused – we hope for good!
