I am wife to Alan and Mum to Pat, Ella and Isobel. I first found Emmanuel via CAMEO when Pat was a just a year old and Ella was a tiny baby. CAMEO became a life line for me and those who helped run it made me feel like I belonged. 17 years later and Emmanuel has become part of my life.
After 10 years as an engineer in the toy industry, I'm currently a home mum to 2 children. At Emmanuel I enjoy leading Seekers group, (especially if we can explore the bible readings through games, science or even fire!) and helping out with the advertising & social media.
In my spare time, I go out geocaching with friends & family and am a Rainbow Guide leader.
A relaxing evening might include reading an historical mystery or watching a period dramas, Midsummer Murder or a really old episode of Poirot or Marple.
I am married to John and between us we have several children, grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Now retired, most of my working life was around admin/ office work. We enjoy having the time now to do the things we never had time for when I was working. I felt privileged to have been nominated as an elder and will do my best to serve Emmanuel in this role.
