Meet The Speaker, Penny

After taking early retirement as a Primary School head teacher, Penny trained as a Tour Guide at Hereford Cathedral and became a Registered Tour Guide for Herefordshire. This has led to an obsession with local history in general, and a particular interest in the parish churches of her home county. She is one of the Churchwardens at her local Parish Church, and is involved in a variety of projects and fundraising there. She and her husband John have travelled widely around the world, putting together several presentations from these visits. They have prepared a total of seventeen talks, which Penny regularly gives to a wide range of local organisations and clubs - on average about eighty talks annually.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
