Quick Fire Questions with Councillor Lucy Williams

To help you get to know the Dartmouth Town Councillors, they have been asked to answer these quick fire questions so that you can find out a bit more about them.

FAVOURITE PLACE IN DARTMOUTH?

The lower path walk up to St Petrox’s Garden of Remembrance where my family now reside.

TOP TIPPLE?

A good red wine, preferably a Merlot.

MOST TREASURED POSSESSION?

My Mother’s signet ring.

BEST BOOK?

Call Me Elizabeth. A novel portraying one woman’s struggle to overcome her life challenges. Truly inspiring.

MUST-SEE MOVIE?

Dangerous Liaisons. Set in my absolute favourite era. The chandelier being lowered scene makes the hair on the back of my neck tingle! The leading Male has a similar effect!

ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE YOUR 18 YEAR OLD SELF?

Never look back, keep it in the moment and will it matter in 6 months time?

HOW DID YOU END UP IN DARTMOUTH?

My parents relocated and I followed in 1989. I needed to escape the pollution of London.

ANY CUTE KIDS OR PAMPERED PETS?

My faithful, loving hound Bertie Ruby Williams and my cheeky cat William Williams who are my life. Bertie Ruby has a vocabulary of 56 words. William knows just the one – food.

CREAM FIRST OR JAM FIRST?

Jam first but not too much. Need to allow lots of space for the mountains of cream.

PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT?

Setting up my own business from scratch in 2013. A huge risk at the time and I was warned by some not to do it. Yes, it has had it’s challenges but it was the best thing I have ever done by far!

MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT?

Dropped a friend to the airport very early one morning. Still in my pyjamas as was planning on going straight back to bed. Somehow managed to lock myself out of the car at the airport. 3 hrs waiting for the AA in the freezing cold…. very publicly… in just my pyjamas!

EAT IN OR DINE OUT?

Eat in. But I don’t cook … so sometimes that presents a problem

EARLY BIRD OR NIGHT OWL?

Both. I work late into the night and wake early.  Never needed much sleep.

BEST THING ABOUT LIVING IN DARTMOUTH?

Being close to my favourite beaches.

WHAT ANNOYS YOU MOST?

Cruelty. Bullies.

WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?

Bertie Ruby William’s and Sunshine.
