Judy has lived in Cambridgeshire for a very large part of her life, after her father left the Army to settle in Caxton to take over the family farm, which they then took on when he retired.
She is married to Nigel who, never one to only do one job, was ordained 13 years ago, so she is also, therefore, a vicar’s wife. They have three adult children, two of whom live locally, and a number of grandchildren.
Judy was a trustee of The Papworth Trust for over 20 years with a particular interest in the clients’ welfare, and she chairs the Cambridgeshire Police Shrievalty Trust under whose auspices The Bobby Scheme is run. She also spends a lot of her time working as a Bereavement Support Volunteer and supervisor of Cambridge Cruse Bereavement Care. Judy is a Churchwarden for St Andrew’s Church, Caxton.
Judy was the High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire for 2008/09, and was appointed a Deputy Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire in 2011.
