    I am a Shropshire Lass who spent her childhood growing up in Bayston Hill with her 2 older brothers.
    My very first school was Oaklands Infants School when it was newly opened. From there I went to Longmeadow Primary School following in the footsteps of my brothers. I spent 4 very happy years years there and have very fond memories, although the school looks very different from my day. It is lovely to see the 2 schools merged now, and I am looking forward to supporting the management team and giving something back to the school that gave me such a good start in my educational life.

    My first job was working for National Westminster Bank where I spent 14 years. I am now a fully qualified HR professional having gained my qualifications whilst working for Land Registry in London. Since then I have worked for the local NHS Trusts and am now working on a part time basis whilst supporting my elderly mother.
