Clare has lived in Sandwich for 6 years, although her connections with the town through her late husband’s family go back to the 1890s, with the Felton barge building business on the Quay and the Felton timber yard.
She renovated the Felton family home over a 2 year period and is a strong advocate for keeping the buildings within the conservation area in keeping with the history and heritage of Sandwich, while allowing interiors to modernise for 21st century needs.
Clare has worked in the wine trade since 1990, always with small companies, and now runs her own very small business in Sandwich. All the Feltons are keen on golf, and Clare will continue to help develop a more collaborative working relationship between STC and the local golf clubs, and promote the benefits that golf brings to the Town.
Clare was elected a Councillor in 2017 for the North Ward of Sandwich. She serves on the Planning Committee and the Asset Management Committee, and strives to contribute a balanced, responsible view to all matters concerning the community of Sandwich. Clare is a working, single parent of two teenagers, who love Sandwich as much as she does
