Personal Profile
I am a very contented and happy person but unfortunately I was recently widowed. I have three grown up children and eight grandchildren.

My interests are wide and very diverse. Recently I qualified as a first responder and I am on call for medical emergencies on Walney Island (where I live).

I have a particular passion of local wildlife and history and because of this I have the opportunity to 'show off' our area to many visitors.
