Being apart of Yorkshire Day at King’s Cross
‘I have a strong tourism background in setting up with others, of course,tourism for the Staffordshire Moorlands in the Southern Peak District between 1979 and 1986 and Middlesbrough when the last shipyard closed between 1986 and 1998 ..both pretty challenging positions.
I was 42 when because of my young family commitments and my partner working abroad I had to give my career up..a pretty tough choice when I was an advisor to the English tourist board and getting senior level I interviews. Family will always come first and we used skills to help my 2 wonderful daughters to become a self employed artist and a vet. I have always loved art and animals.
So with illnesses in the family,as many families do, I have done many business ideas at all levels. I am not precious!I could combine.
I was delighted to be asked to contribute to a new tourism group for North Yorkshire, my birthplace and home and sing the song I sing when you buy my homemade handmade products.
This was at King’s Cross Station with 9 other colleagues as part of Yorkshire day…such fun 😀 in a challenging world. Keep smiling, my Dad used to say. So true. Thanks for the kindness of John Gallery, Chairman of the Herriot group tourism group for inviting me.. Team effort Kindness costs nothing ‘
