In 25 words or less tell us a little bit about yourself:
I’m a mother of 4 boys and one girl and currently have 5 grand-daughters ad 5 grandsons, ranging in age from 3 months to 22years. I have been active in my community over the year, setting up playgroups and entered full-time study when my youngest started school in 1985. I graduated as a Qualified Educator in 1987 and have loved every moment since.
