She also helps lead the local Meals on Wheels. More recently, she co-founded The Cornerstone with her husband and their parish church as a community sharing centre for food, education and community cohesion, which she hopes to replicate elsewhere in the county.
She is a member of the Ditchley Foundation Council of Governors and she currently serves as a Deputy Lieutenant for Oxfordshire. She is an active member of her local church, and her interests include running, equestrian sport and the natural environment.
Mrs Glasgow (59) is a graduate of Stanford University. She was born in the US, but now has dual citizenship and lives in Charlbury with her husband, Dine. They have two adult children.
