Chris joined Lymm Festival as Treasurer for the 2003 Festival and has enjoyed ‘keeping the books’ ever since. The Festival Committee have an abundance of talent and connections in so many areas of music, dance, art etc and her role is to try and ‘keep their feet on the ground’ when it comes to cost.
Being a non-profit making organisation, the Festival’s aim is to cover costs by careful ticket pricing and praying that the weather is good for the outdoor flagship events! Chris has lived in Lymm since 1992 and volunteered to join the Committee after retiring early from a full time job. She felt it would be a good way to use her accounting skills as well as meeting people and getting involved with village life.
