My husband and I moved into Dilton Marsh in August 2018. We had been visiting the area for 2 days every week since 2012 to spend time caring for our 2 grandchildren who were both born and live in Frome with our daughter and her husband. I joined the PC in 2020.
I worked in the NHS for 34 years before retiring from my post as Specialist Heath Visitor for Substance Misusing Families. I spent my NHS time starting in West Bromwich, Walsall, Rhondda Valley and Finally covering all of Rhondda Cynon Taff. I have been a District Nurse, School Nurse and Generic Health Visitor after my stint in hospitals. We were also Foster Carers for very young children and babies for 10 years after retirement.
I have a keen interest in village life, I love the idea of improving the environment with projects like the pollen corridor and following my roots continue to want to help the people around me. Once a nurse/carer always a need to care.
Walking our pooch, reading, knitting and completing various crafts fill my time too.
