My inspiration was my parents and my late partner. They meant so much to me and remind me of happy times. Mum and dad were on honeymoon in their photo. The other photo is of my partner Brian and me, when I was awarded my St. John Ambulance serving sister award at Number 10, the last time we went away. I have lived in Penryn all my life. I was born in my gran’s house and now live in the family home with my brother. I came back after I lost my partner.
In 2005 I was awarded an MBE and given the Saracen Award for services to Penryn. I’m involved with several organisations here and love the community spirit and friendliness of the people. I got involved with this project as a reminder of what Penryn is all about.
It was a lovely project and well done to Megan and her team for all their help, and the laughter that was heard in the room. Everyones plate is unique and means something to them. It was lovely to get together, and the atmosphere was great.
