An Australian Paralympian, Elizabeth swam in the 1996 and 2000 Summer Paraympics, and walked away with 3 medals.

She has co-written a character education and positive education book with Frederika Roberts called "Character.

Also presenting will be representatives of the Harrogate Business Improvement District team. They will share their vision of the difference that this proposed development will make to the town. The scheme would see traders pay a levy towards a fund which would then go towards developing projects to help support business in the area. A ballot to decide the future of the scheme is planned for November 2018.
