This month's superstar volunteer is the effervescent, Charmian Gilbert! A long-standing resident of Limpsfield, Charmian lived in Detillens Lane for 10 years before moving to Dwelly Lane in Staffhurst Wood, where she has now lived for 51 years!   

She married her husband, John at St Peter’s Church and both daughters also live in the village.

Charmian enjoys a good laugh and her smiley face and warm personality has been welcoming customers into Memorial Stores for over five years.

Aside from helping in the Stores, Charmian sings in a local choir that raises funds for various charities. She also enjoys gardening, swimming, yoga, walking, spending time with her family and visiting National Trust properties.

She’s a sucker for our Carrot Cake, her favourite treat amongst the huge variety of delicious cakes and biscuits on sale!
