I was brought up in Leeds and spent 2 years travelling round the world before marrying an East Yorkshire farmer. I have three daughters. I got diabetes when pregnant after contracting meningitis on holiday. I drove a tractor, put my all into lambing, blanched tons of peas, joined the PTA and made brandy snaps for farmers’ markets.
I left the farm and the farmer and moved to Driffield where I now live with my husband Kevin. I have 3 and he has 4 adult children who with their partners make us a huge happy family. I have recently retired from a Further Education College where I taught English and Maths to young adults with learning disabilities which has been an extremely rewarding career.
I have a long Bucket List. Some already achieved such as walking the Inca Trail and seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland, some planned in the future such as returning to India and riding horses to see wildlife in Botswana. I am always looking for the next challenge and the next adventure.
About my talks...
Talks are humourous and illustrated with slides. Talks last approximately 1 hour but can be adjusted to suit your requirements. Clothes from relevant countries worn by speaker. Some props displayed. I can bring all my own equipment. If a wall is available I am happy to project on to that. Black out facilities will enhance the show but not essential.Questions are invited after the presentation. All talks have been presented to male, female and mixed audiences of varying age groups. Available during the day or in the evening. I want you to enjoy my presentation so will try to be as amenable as I can to fit in with your venue and audience
Fee around £50.00 depending on size of audience. Travel expenses required
