Liz has lived in Cookham since 1972 and is one of our most charismatic residents. Her Dutch surname may be unpronounceable but her grin is a real tonic!
For a crust Liz works with her brother, Chris, in electronics – they are developing audience response buttons for those ask the audience type TV shows or conferences.
But it’s her Cookham involvement that makes Liz so well known. Among her many jobs Liz has been a parish councillor, secretary of the Cookham Society, website designer (you’ve seen Cookham.com?) governor at Cookham Rise primary, organiser of the Cookham Youth project, and the Jubilee celebrations in the village.
Nationally, Liz is a passionate campaigner for a variety of causes including recently the Equitable Life Action Group “Government has let us all down by not regulating this chaotic industry”; she’s a leading light in Gardening Which? and Arthritis care.
What I love is Liz’s enthusiasm and determination to do something about things that need changing.
