I moved to Norwich from Shropshire in 1984 to begin my nurse training at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, where I continued to work as a Registered Nurse for the next 17 years. During that time I met my husband and we now have two grown up children who are both at university. I have always been involved from chairing the Parents Teacher Association at East Ruston School, to being Vice Chair of The Parent Staff Association at Wymondham College and being “Fluffy” Owl at Salhouse Brownies.
Before moving to Blofield we lived in Wroxham. Here we bought two derelict cottages that we converted into our family home. Once that was complete I became a Parish Councillor where I organised the redevelopment of the Children’s Playground in Park Road and represented the council at the Neighbourhood Plan meetings. I enjoyed getting to know the Village and becoming part of the community.
We moved to Blofield in 2010, and have spent the last few years completely renovating the house and garden, which is still an on going project of maintenance and always will be, but now the children have gone I would like to volunteer to help in the area we now call home. I am a keen gardener, enjoy upholstery and belong to a reading group.
