Jayne is joining the Parish Team as the new HLF Administrator. She introduces herself and tells us of some of her past experience . . . .
I am very family orientated, having a son, Daniel & daughter in law, Amanda, with two grandchildren, Luke and Chloe. I also have a stepdaughter, Kerry and her partner Jason, and their children, Camron and Tegan. As they all live within a 20-minute journey of Boston, I get to take part in many family outings and activities – and am a useful babysitter!
I enjoy gardening and have many ‘trial and error’ pots in the greenhouse, where I find cuttings or bits of plants and pot them up. If they grow, that’s wonderful, if not, I try again with something different!
For the last 25 years I have been involved in Scouting locally, being the Akela at the 5th Boston (St Botolphs) Cub pack, and this is something that I absolutely love. I am also the Assistant District Commissioner for Cubs for Boston District, which means I get to meet, mentor and support all of the local Cub Leaders within their role. I have been part of the local Scouting Gang Show Team, taking on the role of Treasurer as well as acting on the stage – I soon found out that sadly I don’t have a singing voice.
Whilst at school, I was part of the South Lincolnshire Youth Orchestra, reaching the required standard playing the clarinet. I have recently bought a clarinet again, with the intention of refreshing my skills and playing again just for my own pleasure, so maybe not to the same high standard that I was previously.
I enjoy meeting new people and am always keen to expand my circle of friends, and try new activities whenever the opportunity arises.
