Cllrl Linda Saunders
A little about me...
I am Linda, wife to Steve, we have two children, Richard who is married to Zoe and they have four children and live in Rothwell and Wendy who is married to Mark and they have two children and live in Geddington.
I was born and bred in Kettering where I have lived for most of my life, years ago when the children were small, I moved to Burton Latimer which was a big trauma, moving away. Unlike our last move to Rothwell nearly three years ago which we were excited about and keen to get involved in the lovely town it is. I am a financial director for a quarry in Wales and I work remotely from home which gives me the flexibility to be able to attend meetings or help where necessary.
Why I wanted to become a Councillor?
I have wanted to be involved as a councillor for a few years but needed to wait until the location was right and the time was right – everything fell into place and I now feel I can dedicate the time needed to help and affect the local community. I have always been fortunate with work and family life and would like to now give something back.
What Rothwell mean to me?
We had friends in Rothwell and our son living here with his family so used to come regularly before we moved here. We supported the local shops, especially the butchers as it was worth travelling here to use. We came to eat and socialise here, so it made sense to move here. Since then we support locally as much as possible. I am on the Trust Board of the Holy Trinity Trust to raise money to look after the fabric of our wonderful church. I am a member of the Rowell Fair Society. I am a governor of Wren Spinney Special School and a Trustee on the Creating Tomorrow MAT – they are now involved with the Rothwell Library.
I love living in Rothwell and I love how friendly the people are – we have been welcomed wherever we have been, and l look forward to helping the community in any way I can.
