About Cllr Janet Carter

“Hi I’m Janet,

I’ve spent a lifetime in public service as an (S)RN (now retired) over 40 yrs of working with people in a variety of specialities and settings, from A&E in central London, Health Visiting in the slums of central London, Infectious Diseases – in London and Colorado, Nursing Education – in London, Colorado and Torbay. I was involved with the set up of Roxborough State Park in Colorado and an number of its educational and accessibility programmes in the ’80’s, in Virginia in the ’90’s was an historical Interpreter of Colonial history and festival organiser at National Park level, returning to the UK to care for my late parents and working at Torbay Hospital in Interventional Radiology (now based at Exeter).

In Colorado I was involved with an equivalent to PC and helped set up the 1st kerb-side recycling in the SW USA.

I’m also a small business owner.

I’ve lived in Kingskerswell for 21 years and been on the PC since 2015 with a recent break, while supporting a (non local) family member through their covid journey.  I’ve been involved with various groups in the village over the years – including the History group ( contributing to the book about the village) the Pantomime group, World Unlimited music events and more recently with Kerswella Care’s Memory Cafe.

My interests include: Inclusion, Accessibility, Well-ness, Sustainability, Recycling and Re- Purposing, Community and enjoyment of the great outdoors when possible!

One of the many things Covid has highlighted is the number of people in our community who are not able to access all things on-line and who are therefore increasingly becoming sidelined and out of the loop as society’s momentum drives towards increasing need for being connected on-line. ”
