I am a retired Civil Servant, having spent 32 years in HMRC. I have held a wide variety of posts, including training, HR and Project Management. I am Portsmouth born and bred but have traveled and lived abroad. My father was in the Royal Navy and I have lived in Aden and Malta.
I have 3 sons, all in their 40s now and 6 grandchildren. I enjoy making felt toys, gardening and walking. I care for my mother, who is 87 and enjoy accompanying her to garden centres and the cinema.
Having young grandchildren, I am interested in their education and enjoy helping them with reading and projects. I have also enjoyed, in the past, helping older children to look at life after school and coaching them for interviews or life in the workplace.
I would like to make a difference to those children at Mary Rose who need particular encouragement. I can offer my time and support to the teaching staff and the children.
