Anne, born in 1943, has been a Quaker all her life. After a childhood on a Devonshire farm she achieved an honours degree in chemistry from Imperial College, London and worked for some years as a research chemist before leaving work to start a family. She has 3 children and 2 grandchildren.
In the 1970s and 80s she devoted many years to peace campaigning working with, amongst many other groups, the Quaker Peace Education Advisory Group and published with the Marc Goldstien Memorial Trust, a popular catalogue of Teaching Resources for International Understanding, Justice and Peace.
Anne worked as a Traidcraft Rep for several years and was part of the group enabling Dorking to become a Fair Trade town. She also served first as a mediator and then for 10 years as secretary to the Mid-Surrey Mediation Service. Very concerned about the risks humanity are taking with the planet, she now devotes most of her time to green issues and opens the family home each year as part of the Surrey Eco-homes project.
She is a qualified Quaker Healer and also gives reflexology to friends and family having taken a course with adult education. Her move into alternative medicine arose out of her concern for repeated tonsillitis in her first child and the excessive use of antibiotics. Finding the alternatives had a far more successful outcome, she explored the topic going on various courses. Now, 40 years on, she is regularly consulted by family and friends on alternative ways to treat their ailments and makes her own herbal teas and tinctures, many from her own organically grown herbs.
