I moved to Pontesbury from Warrington in Cheshire about six years ago to be closer to my daughter and family. Initially, I worked as a voluntary TA at Pontesbury Primary School. I am now working as volunteer co-ordinator for Pontesbury Compassionate Communities project (CoCo) – a befriending service for local people, supported by Severn Hospice. I am also secretary for Diabetes UK Shrewsbury Kids Group, supporting young children with Type 1 diabetes and their families through various activities and events held throughout the year. I am now enjoying being part of the FOPL committee and helping with its diverse programme of events.
