Cllr Joy Kofoed (Past Mayor 2018-2019; Past Deputy Mayor 2013-2014 and 2017-2018)
I live and work in Kirton Lindsey and have lived here for over 15 years. I joined the Town Council over ten years ago and have been the Deputy Mayor twice (2013-2014 and 2017-2018) and was privileged to be Mayor in 2018-2019. My Charity during my tenure was for the Lincolnshire Lancaster and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, where the town and others raised thousands for the charity.
I have helped the British Legion and many other charities raise money for projects around the town including the poppy appeal and the new benches at the cenotaph. My husband and I helped to paint and restore the area around the cenotaph.
I have been involved in planting trees and bulbs and was involved with the Kirton in Bloom group which now does such a good job of maintaining flowerbeds and planters. I have been involved with the taking on of the new allotment site and I am hoping to be involved in the several more projects around the town including the sports hall at the RAF base and parking for the town.
I am a forces veteran myself and served in the RAF. I am a competitive horse woman and can be seen riding around the town. My husband is a Professional engineer, school governor of Kirton Lindsey Primary School and is a keen golfer.
A Councillors work is all done voluntarily and for no funds or payment. Along with other volunteers and groups around the town we all strive to make this town a safer and more enjoyable place to live.
