Cllr Lorraine Lindsay-Gale is Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Property, Cultural & Community Services. These include the Library network, the Museum Service, the History Service and the Music Service.
Born and bred in Oxfordshire, after having studied Politics, Economics and Law at University of Kent Lorraine worked as an advertising copywriter before deciding to embark on a second career. She gained a BA Hons in Archaeology at University of Reading, specialising in Mesopotamia 4,000 BC – 2,000 BC. This was followed by a Diploma in Professional Archaeology at Kellogg College, Oxford. She joined Oxford Archaeology, a local archaeological practice working with national and international clients. Her last position there was Corporate Communications Manager.
In 2009 Lorraine was elected to the Dorchester Division of the County Council and was re-elected in 2013 to the re-named Division of Berinsfield and Garsington.
Her particular interests include protection of the environment and conservation of our heritage.
Her main hobby is screen writing (a recent semi-finalist in a world-wide competition).
