Festival Organisers

Sheila Shribman

Festival Chair. 

Sheila is the new Chairman from January 2017.

The NHS has been her professional passion all her life, fulfilling her dream as a child of being a Consultant Paediatrician, a post she held in Northamptonshire for 27 years, before becoming the Government's Tsar for Maternity and Child Health for 7 years. Retiring to Dartmouth was the next ambition and doing something else useful apart from tennis, dog walking and reading.

An experienced Chair, Sheila is honoured to lead the group making the Dartmouth Food Festival happen, especially as a regular fan herself. She says "The team is awesome", "The Food Festival is fantastic" and "We plan to go from strength to strength".
