Liz Grugeon


I'm Liz Grugeon, Reading born and bred; I've lived on the edge of Whitley for over 50 years, and as a child used to visit my grandmother who lived in Cressingham Road.

I'm married to Bunny (don't ask) and have a dog, two children, a son-in-law
and 2 Scottish terrier "grand-dogs".

I'm now retired, but worked for most of my life for the Legal department of Berkshire County Council. I also spent 25 years as an Employment Tribunal panel member.

I'm interested in local and national politics, and enjoy attending live modern jazz concerts. I also read whenever I can, it's the greatest escape from daily problems that I know.
