Meet the volunteer – Bryony Peall

Bryony Peall is emergency response coordinator for IP17GNS. It’s a job that she understands well as she grew up seeing her mother performing a similar role in Saxmundham

Saxmundham Town Council asked me to get involved because they knew that I had a good amount of local knowledge. I grew up here, have worked as a youth leader in the town and spent four years as a town councillor.

I was pleased to help. My mum was the emergency planning officer in Sax and I remember her talking about the challenges of that when I was a child.

Bryony lives in Benhall and has two children, the eldest of whom is at university. In ‘normal’ life, she works as an event manager and as a personal assistant. She has been a committed member of St John’s Ambulance since childhood, being awarded ‘Best Cadet in East Anglia’ in her teens.
