About me

I have recently re-located to live with my daughter in Keighley. She is going to be returning to work soon, so I need support, just to check I am okay and have plenty to keep me busy. I love singing and was in the church choir, where I used to live. Church is a big part of my life too, so I would like to explore what I have in my new community and get involved. I would love you to do this with me.

I used to be a PE Teacher before I retired. I love watching all sports but have a particular passion for cricket.

  • Making simple meals
  • Chatting lots

  • Be someone who enjoys getting out and about
  • Be happy to explore the local community with me
  • Someone able to prepare basic meals at home
  • Happy to go for lunch occasionally
  • Respect my privacy and that of my family and friends
  • Cheerful & positive
  • Car driver with clean licence and a car
