Name: Cllr Joan Heagin
Bio: Joan has lived in Surrey for 40 years; with the last 15 years in Busbridge. Quite a contrast to growing up on a Northumberland hill farm, where she attended local grammar school before gaining a degree in economics at Manchester.
Joan took early retirement from a successful insurance career in the City in order to give something back. This has led to a variety of voluntary roles; from an orphanage in Nepal to dog walking for elderly local residents. She is now a regular volunteer at the Citizens Advice Bureau and she is also on the committee of Busbridge Village Hall. Joan will be focusing her campaign issues on local traffic, more affordable housing and a better local environment.
