I have been a leader for 20 years and started with Brownies then Guides and now I am a Senior Section Leader all within Rochdale East Division.  I am also involved with the Lancs SE Duke of Edinburgh Award group which is doing very well.  I am a First Response trainer so some of you will know my face and I also have my skippers license and love going on the narrowboat.  I have a daughter who is 28 and am the Financial Controller of a digital imaging company in Manchester.  My hobbies away from guiding are sewing (mainly badges onto my camp blanket but also some cross stitch), reading and listening to music.  I have just started my family tree and am total addicted.  No skeletons in the closet yet, but I live in hope.
