Cllr. Mrs. Valerie Moore
Enderby Parish Council
- 6, Browning Street,
I was born in Barrow in Furness in Cumbria and came to live in Leicester at the age of 13. I left school at 15 and trained to be a Telephonist for the GPO. I move to the area some 30 years ago with my three children and husband Richard. Our children attended the local schools and my grandson is now a pupil of Brockington College.
I have worked as a Taxation officer with the Inland Revenue, a Personnel Officer at ASDA, a receptionist at the Enderby Leisure Centre and an Assistant Librarian in Leicester, Enderby and Narborough libraries. I have also volunteered and trained as an adviser with the Citizens Advice Bureau.
When my daughter was 5 years old I went back to school and did my GCSEs, A levels then went to university to do a BA Hons degree in Public Administration, I then went onto do a PGCE and trained to be a primary teacher. I retired as a senior teacher and became a local authority school governor.
I'm now able to get more involved within the local community as I am very interested in community affairs and how the Parish Council can help the community. What happens in Enderby is very important to all its residents, the Parish Council therefore does a very important job for all members of its community whether young or old.
I applied to become a Parish Councillor in Enderby as I wished to become involved more fully in the decision making process for the benefit of Enderby residents. I am very proud to be able to call myself a Councillor serving Enderby Parish. All the Parish Councillors do an amazing job and give up their time voluntarily for the benefit of the people of Enderby.
Enderby has excellent community services and it is because of the hard work and diligence of the Parish Council. I believe the Parish Council has a positive future.
