My name is Jane Close, I have been married for 40 years and I am the mother of two sons and a grandparent to five children.
For the past eleven years I have worked for the NHS as patient administrator. I am also the director of two companies. One of which is private landlord, for which I have several properties in my portfolio. The other is a holiday lettings company. The turnover for the two companies is approximately £250,000.00
I am also treasurer for a local majorettes group that has children ranging from 3 years old up to 18 years old.
I have also previously been the secretary for a construction company and a plant hire company, both of which had turnovers in excess of 2 million pounds. Unfortunately, both these companies were dissolved when the director retired.
I have always been connected to young children in one way or another as my mother was a teacher and I helped out at many school functions. I was a swimming instructor for many years at a local swimming club and was involved in in many activities I.e. football, swimming, and athletics when my children were young.
I hope this gives you some idea of my background.
