Introducing our new HLF Administrator, Jayne Maddy

05 October 2018

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.
