Meet the Team
Born in Sunderland but living most of her younger years just across the border in Dumfriesshire, Lorraine has now lived in the Carlisle area for 30 years, the last 7 of them in Warwick Bridge. Passionate about enabling young people to have the best possible start in life she works at Carlisle Youth Zone as the mentoring coordinator. This involves recruiting, training and managing their volunteer mentors. Having volunteered for almost 20 years as a leader with Girlguiding, she was asked to take on the role of Border Division Commissioner in 2016 and continues to get much enjoyment from doing this. Lorraine is a community minded person and felt her experience in volunteer management would be useful to the steering group as they move the project to the operational stage. She is delighted that Warwick Bridge Corn Mill has been restored and brought back to life and is looking forward to assisting in developing it for the benefit of the community!
