Bedfordshire, Essex & Hertfordshire District
Linda is Forum Rep for the Beds, Essex and Herts District
I am an Essex girl, and have always lived in the county, and I have been a part of the Methodist church since my christening over seventy years ago!
I feel privileged to represent Beds, Essex and Herts as Forum Rep and hope to be able to spread the world of our social justice activities, as well as our aims to support and encourage women and, of course, to make Christ known. I am currently MWiB District Secretary and a former District President. One of my retirement projects was to become more involved in (then) Network.
I was a secretary all my working life, with a career break when my three daughters were young. My final job was working for the Chief Executive of our local Christian hospice which encompasses separate adult and children’s in-patient services and adult and paediatric hospice at home.
Since retiring, I have become more active in my garden, although I shall never be green-fingered. I belong to a local choral society, read, knit, and enjoy the theatre, ballet and opera.
