Zoe Martin

I was born in London, grew up in Kent and also lived in Essex for 15 years before moving up to Cockermouth in 2017. I had lived in Cockermouth for 5 years previously in the late 90’s and had always wanted to return here but it took 15 years until I eventually got back!

I have 3 children who all participate in various sports, 2 sons play in the Cockermouth Junior football club.

I was an active Police Officer for nearly 24 years in both The Metropolitan Police and Cumbria Constabulary and worked as a Detective for the last 14 years of my career in London in various squads and departments. I’m currently a self employed landlady of property (not a pub) and have been renovating my own Victorian house in Cockermouth.

I volunteered to help with the football club Welfare Officer role as I still enjoy helping people and have lots of experience in dealing with safeguarding issues and problems from my previous work.

I’m happy to help the club from the committee side of things as well as being a supporter Mum from the sideline of the pitch. I hope my experience will be put to good use and that I can help the club run a friendly safe environment for children.
