Pam has valued and enjoyed being a part of the church family at St. Anne's since she was brought to church by her parents following her birth many years ago.

She taught in a number of secondary schools in Liverpool for over 30 years finishing as a Pastoral Assistant Head for 6 years before her retirement. Pam has a son, working as a solicitor in London and a daughter who is a specialist nurse in Oncology at Alder hey Children's Hospital. She is now one of the Directors of Liverpool Cricket Club having played tennis and hockey at county level. She also enjoys travel and theatre. As Pastoral Team Co-ordinator at St. Anne's her role is to co-ordinate the team of volunteers drawn from the church to ensure the housebound, lonely or ill members are visited at home, in residential care homes or in hospital.
Originally from Ireland, I arrived here over 20 years ago to go to University and never went home! I am a full time primary school teacher, currently teaching Year 6 in Rice Lane, Walton. Married to Conal, we have two children Cara (10) and Jamie (7). If I'm not ferrying the kids around or marking/planning work for school, I like to go to the gym or get out for a run. I also love a good book, tv drama or film, which provide me with that escapism we sometimes strive for after a busy day! In St. Anne's I am involved with the youth group SAYU and am delighted to have been voted on to the PCC and to be able to serve in this way.
