Committee Member SIRA Committee

My name is Fabienne. Before you ask, yes I am French. Our family bought a property on the island nine years ago and we finally made it here in January now that our children are old enough to be at school.  I am from a rural background and love that natural aspect of Scotland Island.  My work evolves around hydrogeology or groundwater resources management if you prefer. When I get some time, I love baking, cooking and throwing pots and bowls (ceramics).

Committee Member SIRA

Here I am again willing to continue on the SIRA committee in whatever capacity I’m more suited.

In 2017 it was as Community Hall Manager  and I focussed on concerns surrounding the increase of golf buggies on the Island.

My working life was as a journalist/sub-editor until I made the Island my home five years ago.

My membership of SIRAC has given me a much better understanding of Island issues and the efforts of other committee members to seek positive outcomes in their endeavours for out environment.
