In May Julia Gough replaced Jeffrey Gaines as a resident non-executive director of Cognatum Estates. Julia is a great supporter of the Cognatum way of life having lived with her husband at Church Place in Ickenham for the past eleven years. She taught in London before moving to Cheltenham where she became a magistrate, latterly mainly working in the family court. She then moved to a cottage on the Helford River in Cornwall for a few years before moving to Ickenham. With ten grandchildren, she now describes herself as ‘a peripatetic, trouble-shooting grandmother!’
