Cllr Wendy Croucher - Chair of General Purposes & Community Committee
I was born at the local maternity hospital in 1952 and the first place I lived was in a flat in the old Sandringham. We then moved into 99 Waveney Rd to one of the first new council houses. I attended a variety of schools most of which I was expelled from. However I have fond memories of my time at Hunstanton Primary school. It turned out that my problems at school were tied into my mild dyslexia. My parents had seasonal business in Hunstanton and I worked with them until I was Twenty-nine, when they retired. In the winter I went as a weigh person at British Sugar in Kings Lynn. I have experienced being a seasonal worker for a large part of my working life.
I was seventeen when I started working as a part time paid and voluntary Youth Worker in Hunstanton. I received my long service award before I left at thirty-four. I went onto a two year full time course in Manchester to become professional Youth Worker. After I finished I went to work in the London area where I was in various London Boroughs. First as a Youth Centre manager then a Peripatetic Youth Team Leader then a area Youth Work Officer and finally as a Detached Youth Work Manager. I retired due to Ill health and returned to Hunstanton on the death of my mother. I now run her small property business. My health has improved greatly and hopefully you will all see me soon on the love of my life my trike. I am so busy I wonder when I had time to work.
