Cllr Vanessa Holt


After growing up in my home town of Telford, I studied at the University of Glamorgan for a Bachelors in Creative Arts and then worked with Techniquest (A science centre in Cardiff) to attain a Masters in Communicating Science.  Since then, I have worked in various science centres around the UK, including Enginuity in the Ironbridge Gorge, to enthuse young people and families about science.

3 years ago, I decided to have a career change and returned Telford.  I am very much enjoying the way our town has developed over the last few years, with our excellent family events and the friendly atmosphere of our community.

In my spare time,  I act as a Ward Councillor for the Nedge, being available for residents at regular surgeries and ward walks.  I also like to take part in local musical theatre and frequently sing at charity events.  I am passionate about education, community and the environment and I love to spent time in our beautiful Shropshire Hills.
