Rachel is one of the team members that looks after our Childrens group Rockets!
Favourite food: at the moment it’s probably a marmite and crisp sandwich (you either love
it or hate it!) followed by lemon meringue pie!
Place of work (or where you would like to work): I’m currently teaching ICT at the local
college to 16+ year olds. However, I did Economics at A level, and if I had my time again (and the confidence!) I would like to have been the first female Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Hobbies/past-times: I have introduced my family to board games, always a passion of mine! Scrabble, Catan or Colditz anybody? We are also into history so enjoy re-enactments and trips to English Heritage sites around the country.
Favourite book/TV programme: I loved reading the “Poldark” books by Winston Graham, so am very much enjoying watching the TV series at the moment. My favourite genre of TV is usually detective series.
Holiday destination: I’d like to visit Malta. My parents went many years ago and, with
Apostle Paul’s reference to the friendliness of the people, it sounds like a beautiful island.
People I would most like to meet: Nicky Cruz or C.S. Lewis. As a teenager I remember
reading “Run Baby Run” by Nicky Cruz, which was an eye opener and a book I have never
forgotten. “The Chronicles of Narnia” and “The Screwtape Letters” by C.S. Lewis are true
Favourite superhero: Thermoman (Ardal O’Hanlon plays the character very well) from My
Hero – a real life superhero!
