nvI started the Family Grapevine group of magazines in 1995 when my son was 6 years old. 25 years on I have decided that I would like to provide the same sort of service for the active over 60’s as I am one of them myself.

I am aware that it is sometimes difficult to find things to do that includes our age group as well as those specifically for over 60’s and that can be frustrating and sometimes isolating.

My hope is that the magazines will help you to find activities, classes, places to go and events so you can continue to have a fun and active life.

I hope you enjoy the magazine and find it very useful.

What are you most proud of achieving as a part of the Grapevine group?
I am proud of the information we provide for readers and local businesses, especially when it takes a lot of ferreting to find and verify. I also get great pride from giving other people who join our group, the opportunity to earn money in a way that benefits their community and fits in with their family life.

What are your hobbies?
Walking my dogs (springer spaniel and cockapoo), genealogy, singing in the local choir, badminton, pilates, table tennis and reading.

What is one thing about you that not many people know?
I once acted as an unofficial tour guide showing people around the remains of the Kowloon walled city in Hong Kong.
