Your Host

Mary King

I am Mary, a 61 year old retired lady, who is now enjoying spending time on all my interests and hobbies as well as going out and about with family and friends. Walking, cycling, tap dancing and swimming keep me busy as well as going out and about in our campervan whenever possible. I enjoy a wide range of craft activities and am always on the lookout for a new challenge. I am a member of one of the Pimm’s and Needles groups and thoroughly enjoy the range of activities we have engaged in. In addition, meeting and socialising with new people over our coffee and cake breaks has been lovely and it’s been great meeting the new members and watching friendships and skills develop.
