CWO Eastern Region

Welcome to the Eastern Region page.

My name is Lynne Faulker and I was elected Eastern Region chairman in March 2019. I have been a lifelong member of the Conservative Party. I was a County/District/Borough Councillor for many years, serving as North Hertfordshire District Council Chairman, Bedfordshire County Council Cabinet Member and Vice Chairman, Bedford Borough Council Committee Chairman and EERA (East of England Regional Assembly) representative. Now I am Bedfordshire & Cambridgeshire Area Deputy Chairman Membership.

Professionally I was an International HR Manager in BP, Anglian Water and SME's and an Employment Tribunal member for many years. My public service spans 35 years and included a stint as a UK representative on the EU European Economic & Social Committee in Brussels. Now semi retired, I am Deputy Chairman of Bedfordshire WI International Committee and Bedfordshire WI representative of ACWW (the Association of Country Women of the World, representing 9 million women worldwide). As EUW British Leader of Europe Alive, I lead delegations annually to Europe, most recently to Santander, Spain and Kos, Greece, and this year we go to SW France.

Eastern Region is planning two conferences in 2019 - a Summer Meeting at Heydon Grange Golf Club, near Royston on Friday 12 July 2019 on "Women and Justice" with a panel of speakers and an Autumn Meeting on Friday 8 November with a Youth theme. We are trying to encourage new CWO Branches and a new one is currently being started in Peterborough.
