I’m partly retired now, but I still work two days a week as a medical secretary. These are very trying, very challenging times. We’re all separated in different offices now in our cottage hospital — it’s not an acute hospital, but if we’re not there, the
GPs don’t get the information they need for the patients.
I joined a flower club when my children were small. My background was in fashion design, and, when we moved back to Sussex over 30 years ago, I channelled my artistic abilities into flower design.
I know many members who combine this with the enjoyment of arranging flowers through being members of NAFAS, the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies. Arranging flowers in a church setting or any beautiful building or garden is, for me, very therapeutic.
