Biography:

Originally from Sheffield. The last twenty five or so years in Chesterfield. When I was widowed I felt the need to stretch myself and, as I’ve always been creative, I found an outlet for that, by producing my first talk, which is the one about a keen interest for me - hand cut wooden jigsaws. From that I thought what else do I enjoy as interests/hobbies? That then resulted in my rag rug talk, my Mexican talk, my cryptic crossword talk, and I had really got the bug when my imagination was caught by a brief reference to the word Velocipede. That resulted in one of my most popular. ....everyone has ridden a bicycle, as also, everyone has done a jigsaw! Lastly having been lucky enough to stay in several beautiful Landmark Trust properties, it seemed natural to create a talk from my experience.

And then...... I reckoned the world is addicted to coffee, so what about a talk on the history of Coffee? Finally, my most recent talk is about the Romanovs, from 1896-1918, their sad demise, a focus on the family side of those years.

I mainly do daytime presentations, and all my talks consist of 100 or so slides and incorporate video.
