Margaret Smith

I grew up in Lincolnshire but have lived for 45 years in Norfolk, mostly in this area.

My mother, grandmother and great grandparents came from Bunwell, so I have some strong links to

these villages. I am widowed, with 3 adult children, and 3 small grandchildren, who are a source of

great delight.

I was licensed as an LLM/Reader in 2016, and in my spare time enjoy gardening and entertaining.

Angie Baldwin

My name is Angie Baldwin. I've lived in Wacton for 2 year and love it, and have been a Reader for 8 years.

I moved from living on my narrowboat on the Chesterfield Canal where I became a Waterways Chaplain, a role I now continue on the Broads.

I have two spaniels, one of whom is blind and we share our home with my father. I enjoy walking, reading, art, patchwork and I'm trying to get to grips with gardening.

During my life I've been a Radiographer, a smallholder and a School Librarian. I have three chidren and 4.5 grandchildren.
