Your Host

Jo Nevison

Hello all! I’m Jo, I love fellwalking, paddle-boarding and crafting. I still haven’t taught myself to like coffee or seafood so don’t consider myself a grown up even though I’m 55! I’m looking forward to hosting the Willow Road group, where I hope to get to know lots of new people while we try out some excellent new things. Oh, and eating cake, Donna and Charlotte said that is positively encouraged!
