Before I moved to Garstang to live I managed a before school, afterschool & holiday club for about 8 years. I have been Breakfast Club Supervisor at Garstang Community Primary School since 2010, also working in the After School Club.

My interest’s are travelling, walking my dog & watching football.

I have worked in childcare since 1994 when I started at Cabus Nursery. I then moved to St Thomas’ Pre School and then Forton Pre School.
I have been the Supervisor at Garstang Community Primary After School club since 2003.
My hobbies & interests are walking, pilates, watching football & reading.

I have worked at Garstang Community Primary since 2001. I work at the after school club two days a week. I also work at Garstang Community Academy as a teaching assistant. I love my job, every day is different, and can’t imagine doing anything else.

I have two wonderful children, Mollie and Harvey, who take up most of the rest of my time, but I love to read, go to the cinema, restaurants and concerts.
