County Grants Support Adviser
A little background information…
Hi I’m Bex Mezzo and I have been a leader, adviser, commissioner (Brownie – Guide – Young Leader and Ranger – no Rainbows !). My other time available is spent with Sleaford Dementia Support a charity I helped to start and in nearly 7 years have helped more than 100 people locally with dementia. Along with this I am a governor of LPFT – Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and have been for 3 years – there to help make things better for people with not so good mental health, autism, learning disabilities and dementia. My husband David and I will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary next year.
Why did you take on this role? and what lies ahead?
This role gives me the opportunity for the girls to have a new leader and me to use my skills in a different way to help you at unit, district, division and county level. I have already helped the new Woodhall Spa Guides. Ask me and I will try to help.
