Gill is the founder of the Rural Skills Centre at New Park Farm. The Centre is based on her lifelong passions for creativity and the countryside. Having been taught to knit by her grandmother at a very young age, her interests lay with textiles but in recent years, she has become more interested in ‘bubbles’, soaps making and bath bomb making. Previously, her ‘day job’ was in Higher Education. Gill has been a senior manager, a trainer of trainers and has shared her skills through many international, university and community initiatives. She is ready to have fun sharing her passion for countryside life with you in her twilight years.
