Ann Pearcey

Member of the Planning Committee, Public Services Committee, Recreation, Leisure and Amenities Committee and Joint Burial Committee.

Ann qualified from Leeds Dental School in 1983 and is now retired. Since graduating, Ann has worked in a variety of clinical settings, either side of enjoying being a mum-at-home. For more than 20 years, Ann has also practised a complementary therapy. Ann and Tony moved from Lancashire to the Parish four years ago; they wish they had done it sooner! Ann currently cares for her mum. Ann and Tony love village life and make the most of beautiful West Sussex, with its lovely walks and tea shops. Having joined the Parish Council in 2019, Ann has enjoyed the opportunity to get to know Westbourne and become involved in projects that benefit the local community. Other than walking and gardening, Ann's hobbies include kitting, sewing, baking, contemporary embroidery, yoga, meditation, hand bells and a variety of U3A groups.
