Prior to her election as Lord Mayor, she also served as Deputy Cabinet Member of Adults and Public Heath in addition to sitting on the Planning Applications Committee.

As a Councillor Christabel created the annual Christmas Tea Dance (held at the Grosvenor Hotel in Park Lane), it is a free event for 1000 Westminster residents aged 65+ and provides the opportunity for people to forge new friendships.
