Lynn moved to Bicester in 1998 and immediately got involved in serving the local community. She was first elected to Bicester Town Council in 1999 and has also been a Cherwell District Councillor for over 12 years. She tries to be as accessible as possible for residents to discuss their Council-related problems. Lynn lives in Bicester North and until her retirement was the senior receptionist at North Bicester Surgery.
Outside of her Council roles, Lynn also volunteers with several community organisations. She is Chairman of the Bicester Feoffee Charity, a member of Bicester Twinning Association and a Trustee of The Hummingbird Centre.
