Paula Hiscocks

CCB Board Member Paula Hiscocks

Appointed by: Hertfordshire County Council

After studying English and History at Reading I worked for The British Council in Sweden for five years where my appreciation for nature and wildlife was established.

Most of my career has been in Education having taught English at Secondary schools in Brent and Hertfordshire and then moving to Hertfordshire Language and Curriculum Support Unit advising teachers. I also served as a school governor until last year.

Alongside this is my love of the Arts. I was instrumental in saving Rickmansworth’s Watersmeet Theatre, managing and chairing it as a Trust for two years and starting the successful Film Society.

I have also been a District Councillor for Three Rivers Council for 14 years; serving on the Environmental and Leisure Panel as well as the Planning Committee amongst others. I was Chairman of the council in 2019 and Deputy Leader of my party.

At present I am deputy Executive Member for Children’s Services at Hertfordshire County Council and sit on this and the Education and Libraries Panel.

My love of the country side and the importance of our rights of way has always prevailed and I spent a lot of my time in Somerset walking in The Quantocks and on Exmoor.
