Betty Burchell. Joined 2012

Hello, my name is Betty Burchell and l have just been accepted as a new trustee for Age Concern Great Yarmouth.  

Only newly widowed last year l am looking forward to my new year as a trustee. I am an Essex girl and since leaving school I have only had two jobs. I started in Banking which I did from 1966 — 1980 which the year l was got married. In January 1981 my husband and I brought a Post Office in Hatfield, Peverel, Essex in which I was Post Mistress whilst my husband worked in London.

This was a busy place which had a shop and a sorting office.  In 1995 we sold up and came for what we hoped was a better quality of life in Norfolk.  I enjoy meeting people which I have always done.  I belong to several different groups and now help at the Age Concern lunch club in Caister which meets every Tuesday.
