I grew up in Spennymoor; however, when I turned eighteen, I left home to train as a Salvation Army officer at the William Booth Training College. Upon commissioning and ordination, I was appointed to Scotland where I spent twenty five very happy years. I returned to the North East when my husband retired.
For the past fifteen years, I have been involved with the school’s ministry and four years ago, I started to volunteer at West Cornforth Primary- teaching year one children to play the tambourine. During this time we have played in school, in church and at the local community centre.
As a governor, I have several roles in school including membership of the Personnel and School Committees. I greatly enjoy the opportunity to work more closely with the people of the local community, staff and children of West Cornforth Primary School.
