About Lucy

Lucy grew up just outside Totnes in Devon. Together with her four brothers and sisters she went to local schools. Lucy’s mother was a teacher and her father a farmer.

In 1983 Lucy went to Durham University where she read Anthropology. After graduating she went on to build a successful career in finance and law. She now runs her own employment law consultancy, which gives her the flexibility to pursue political and community activities.

A Councillor in the London Borough of Wandsworth since 2006, she has gained experience in increasingly senior roles, including Chairman of Transport and Planning and Deputy Chairman of Health.  As a Southfields ward Councillor she represents 17,000 residents.  She is a Non Executive Director of Wandsworth NHS.

A seasoned political campaigner, Lucy’s first political involvement was at the age of 14, fly posting home made leaflets during the 1979 General Election. Most recently she has been Deputy Chair of Putney Conservatives (2007 – 2009) during the successful campaign for Mayor of London and the GLA elections.

Lucy has a track record of community service and voluntary work including: school governor, working with a domestic violence charity, being a member of a children’s fostering panel, and doing pro bono advisory work. She is also a member of the Wandsworth Town Centre Partnership and was previously the Chairman of the Pupil Referral Unit Advisory board.
