My husband Richard had a heart attack in June 2010. It came as such a shock as we thought ourselves to be healthy people. After progressing through rehab we came across Upbeat. And what a blessing that has become. Wonderful new friendships and very importantly shared problems.
We lead a busy life as active grandparents to four and have lived in Brockley a small village south of Bury for nearly 40 years, happily becoming involved in all village activities. I have served on various committees over the years (and still do) trying to do my bit. We enjoy roaming in the wilds of Scotland and Ireland in our campervan with our dog Maisie in tow.
I look forward to joining the committee of Upbeat and hope that my experience of committee work may be of some help.
