I have been a member of the GEF for many years and served on the Council for a time during the leadership of Kathleen and Bill Adams. After retiring from a career teaching English and Drama I was able to become more actively involved in the Fellowship and in 2016 I joined the Council once more.
My interest in drama, music and art has enabled me to contribute to the organisation of Fellowship events, such as Lesley Smith’s superb portrayal of the life of Mary Ann Evans, Meet the Woman, commissioned to mark the bicentenary of her birth. Also, during Lockdown, I wrote the Silas Marner Activity Book to accompany Viv Wood’s wonderful adaptation of the novel.
I enjoy my work on the Council and it is a privilege to be constantly learning more about the life and work of this remarkable writer.
