Welcombe Radio Administrator and Broadcaster

I retired to Stratford upon Avon with my ex-Army husband five years ago after retiring after forty something years of nursing, mainly in the NHS. A varied career, from Accident and Emergency nursing, industrial nursing working for an international motor manufacturer and after having my daughter, later became a District Nurse (no bike) and a specialist in Wound Care and Medical Equipment Provision.

The varied aspects of this life including a love of nature and the countryside has continually underpinned how important ‘community’ is in all its related forms.

I have met so many great people, groups and organisations supporting people in Stratford upon Avon. However, there are concerns here as elsewhere, that many people of all ages feel socially isolated as the busy world whizzes round. To be part of the Welcombe Radio project to help support my local chosen community is a great privilege and great for me as an individual.
