Safeguarding Officer
Hello, my name is Janet Bull: I am the new Safeguarding Officer for St Mary’s Church. I live in the village of Newchurch and have been part St Mary's Church since I moved into the village 9 years ago with my husband Douglas, who is one of the Church Wardens. I grew up in the area, living on a farm on Noggarth road.
I have previous experience of safeguarding with my role as District Nurse for the past 40 years, retiring recently.
I enjoy walking, motorhome holidays, helping out on the family farm and looking after my grandchildren.
I am looking forward to being safeguarding officer and being more involved with the church.
My contact mobile is: 07415 340433
