about us badge


D MarklandSome of you may remember that I covered Emma Atkinson’s maternity leave when she was off having Barney. Well, I am back in the office for a few hours each week.  Running our busy active Church and Church Centre has meant that the amount of tasks and activities that now come into the office has increased substantially. So, when the church advertised for a part-time role a couple of months ago, I decided to apply. After a comprehensive interview process, I was pleased to be offered the role.
It is great to be back with Sue and Jane and the added bonus of working alongside Emma rather than in place of her. Emma and I are part of the core team that bring the Christmas Market together and have worked alongside each other for a few years now; so it seemed a very natural fit to work together in the office too!
Due to my previous office role there has been very little time needed by the office staff to bring me up to speed. You will usually find me working on Mondays and I hope that I am making the difference needed to assist the office in keeping up-to-date with all the jobs and tasks that come our way.
I combine this role with helping my husband Martyn, to run his commercial property consultancy company. I am actively involved in a number of voluntary areas across the church from running Cluster on a Tuesday, to mentoring within SWUT and helping to run the new Fast Forward course, to name a few; so I am kept pretty busy!
