Debs Edwards

Hello I am Debs Edwards. Since I was 15, I have worked not only in the community sector but also in the public and private sector. I have worked in a number and variety of jobs, kennel maid, shop worker, PA, waitress, welder, Civil servant for the MOD, Finance and Network Manager, with lots of other jobs in between these experiences. I have been Labour Southcote Councillor since 2006.I was honoured to be the Worshipful Mayor of Reading for the 2011/2012 and 2018/19 terms. I attended 13 schools and colleges before I was 18. I was a Forces child so we moved around very frequently. I returned to Reading with my family in 1981. I have 5 children and am a grandmother of 8. My husband, Alun, and I also sponsor a child in Honduras. I volunteer as a school governor and support a number of community facilities and charities. I am a Trustee for Launchpad. I am passionate about getting the best possible support and future for our young people so that they can lead a fulfilling and happy life. I believe in life-long learning and personal development for all. In my free time, I swim, walk, am an avid reader of detective novels and do crosswords to relax.
