Caroline Nokes first contested the Romsey Parliamentary Constituency in 2005, narrowly failing to gain the seat by just 125 votes. She was immediately reselected to fight the Romsey and Southampton North seat. In the early hours of May 7th 2010, following the general election the previous day, Caroline was confirmed as the Member of Parliament for Romsey and Southampton North. She won with a majority of 4156, securing a swing of some 4.5% from the Liberal Democrats to the Conservatives.
Caroline was educated locally – at Thornegate School Wellow (by the wonderful Diana Pares), Romsey Abbey Primary School, Romsey School, La Sagesse Convent in Romsey and then Peter Symonds’ College, Winchester. She studied politics at the University of Sussex from 1991-4.
Caroline lives with her daughter Tabitha in West Wellow, the village where she grew up. They have variously raised organic pigs, free range chickens and have a host of dogs, cats and horses. Living on the edge of the New Forest National Park they are often visited by a family of three deer who roam in their garden and are very beautiful to watch (unless they are chomping on the roses!)
Caroline was a member of Test Valley Borough Council, for the Romsey Extra ward, between May 1999 and May 2011, and served for 10 years as the Executive In parliament, she sits on the Environmental Audit Committee.
