My then partner (now husband) moved to the old pumphouse known as Ladybower Lodge back in 2009. Following a number of years of moving back and forth to Rotherham where I was born, we made our permanent home here in 2018. I feel very privileged to live in such a beautiful part of the world, and feel passionately that every-one should have the opportunity to visit our little piece of paradise. I am currently the CEO of a women’s charity that provides accommodation and support to a range of vulnerable women, children and families in South Yorkshire and so am very keen to promote the interests of those whose voices are less heard in the community. I have a son who is currently studying in Durham and a stepson who lives in Brighton, both of whom return home to get some fresh air, exercise and to raid the fridge when they get the chance! When not working, we like to walk, swim and frequent the excellent pubs in the area.
