Ann joined the board in June 2019, after retiring in 2009 from working part time. 

Ann is currently a member of the Worthing Mencap committee, which involves running Buddys, a social hub run by people with a learning disability for everyone in the community to enjoy, so that no one is left isolated.

Ann's late husband Charles was one of the founding partners in establishing Ferring Country Centre in 1986. Therefore, Ann has been majorly involved with the Centre since its opening. Their biggest motivation for opening the Centre, alongside John and Janice Ranger, was their twin boys, who both have Down's Syndrome. Ann's son James still attends the Centre now.
