Kristy is a successful businesswoman who co-owns a design company.
She is Former Area Chairman of 12 associations in Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. She has experience in governance previously being a Director of a learning board trust overseeing eight schools.
Kristy was part of a team that delivered a Modern Slavery Garden at Chelsea Flower Show in 2016, to their delight they won a gold medal. Kristy said ‘The idea was to raise awareness of the crime and help victims. Theresa May visited the garden, I was impressed as it was a difficult time and yet she kept her promise to support us, and later announced a £35 million fund to fight modern slavery at source. The PM is serious about fighting this horrendous crime and I am too. We reached over 5 million people on twitter and 3 million on TV with the message that modern slavery is in our streets behind closed doors and we can get victims help, thanks to the BBC, RHS and Piers Morgan.
Kristy Adams said: “I am committed to all forms of equality. I value acceptance of people of all backgrounds, sexes and sexuality. My personal view is that I can’t believe in 2017 that I would need to state the obvious, I have never been homophobic and find it disturbing to hear of people who are homophobic. The LGBT community champion tolerance and fight injustice, I share their desire to make our community a place of acceptance. Theresa May said in the Conservative manifesto that it doesn’t matter what your background is or who you are, we are here to give you the best chance in life to achieve your potential.”
Kristy grew up in Sussex and received an honours degree in Contemporary Fine Art from Northampton University. She lives with her husband of twenty-four years and their two children.
