I have worked with this charity for just over 20 years, having been invited to join the team here by Joyce Ferne in 2001. Having recently retired as the Co-Ordinator of this centre, I am very pleased that my association continues through working as a trustee. I live nearby in our own cottage opposite the Coach House with my husband Mike.
I hope my practical knowledge and experience will be of benefit to the charity at board level, as I feel a strong commitment to help support the work and growth of this charity. As well as being a wife, mother and grandmother, I am a retired Anglican priest, (SEC) with an ongoing ministry of spiritual accompaniment.
I have seen many, many individuals benefit enormously from having time here. Time to reflect, rest, pray, be quiet, to be renewed in their own sense of worth, well being and purpose. The Coach House and the small team who work here provide an oasis away from the noisy and frenetic world, so individuals can ‘step aside’ and find their deep centre.
