I have lived in Haversham since January 1985, and was nine years in Newport Pagnell prior to that. While my children were growing up I was involved in village activities such as the local fete, social centre (I was on the committee for a time), the Road Safety Action Group, the village show – and both children attended the youth club. For the last 18 years I have been employed as an Editor for an in-house publication, the last three years for four days a week rather than full time. I enjoy walking with my dog on the footpaths around Haversham and the surrounding area, and feel incredibly lucky to live in such superb countryside.
