Before retirement I was a secondary school RE teacher, and have also worked for the Acorn Christian Healing Foundation, training children and young people in listening skills. In retirement I have enjoyed working as a volunteer for the Church Mission Society; Tim and I were CMS mission partners in Kenya in the eighties.
I have just completed eight years as churchwarden here in the Strettons. This gave me ample opportunity to get to know many members of the church family, which I continue to do in my new role as pastoral care coordinator.
In my leisure time, as well as exploring the local area I enjoy cooking, embroidery, colouring, reading and gardening. We have two sons and six grandchildren, who we enjoy meeting up with whenever possible.
