Maria was elected in 2015 to represent Ravenmeols Ward on the Parish Council. Maria has been Chairman of the Parish Council twice and has served as Vice Chairman and Chairman of the Finance Group and the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group. Her working background is in Teaching and Law. She was born in Formby and moved away to Africa when she was very young but returned to Formby with her own family some 25 years ago. She has always been part of the community and for 10 years ran the Gild Hall Toddler Group on a voluntary basis. Her passion is Formby and ensuring that the community spirit lives on and is a safe and friendly environment for all who live and work here. She advocates democracy and open transparency.
