I was born in Bury St Edmunds in 1948 and have lived here all of my life. 

I have one son and one grandson who live nearby.


I left school at 15 and became an apprentice hairdresser progressing through to running my own business for the last 24 years of my career I had lots of fun and made many friends over those 50 years.


My heart problems came on suddenly in 2015 and in the September I had heart bypass surgery. I felt very supported by my faith during that time and grateful to be given another chance.


After I had done my rehab at the West Suffolk Hospital I joined Upbeat I was amazed at the warm welcome I received and the happy atmosphere - just what I needed! I have benefitted so much from the support and friendship from everyone at Upbeat.
