A very happy new year to everyone in Limpsfield and the surrounding areas. While we're still in a christmassy mood, the festively-dressed Nicky Gill is our volunteer of the month for January!
Nicky is a familiar face in the stores having lived in Limpsfield most of her life and has been a volunteer for over 12 years, 11 of which have been spent behind the post office counter. Although she now lives in Warlingham, Nicky still views Limpsfield as “home” and loves everything about it, including the views, the woods, the golf course, the chart and of course, the people!
Nicky grew up in Priest Hill Lodge – right by the Stores – where she lived with her parents and attended Laverock school (which for those who haven’t been around for as long, was a girls’ school that used to inhabit the spot where Hazelwood Larks is now).
A former teacher, Nicky is also a Librarian at Warlingham Community Library. She's also a keen actor and singer, was a member of St Peter’s Choir and regularly treads the boards for the Oxted Players, Merstham Amateur Dramatic Society and Warlingham Am Dram!
Don't mess with her, as she's particuarly skilled with a needle and loves sewing, knitting and crochet.
Chocolate Viennese Whirls are her particular weakness in the treat department!
