Open Day at Castle Grounds 1888
This was one of those postcards that I probably paid a little too much for, but I simply had to have it.    A slightly grubby and exhausted example and who would not be after 127 years. Isn't it just a great little example of Victorian Guildford?

Hilary I did a presentation recently on how postcards can illustrate our history. Not just observing what is in the picture, but what is not in the picture. There are some lovely street scenes of Guildford (and other places in my collection) I wonder what the generations that follow us will think when the see street scenes of the 21st Century with huge retail parks.

Story
Tagline
Genealogist & historian, researcher, booklover, writer and blogger
Introduction
I am a Surrey girl, who is very proud of her roots, which go back almost 300 years in Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire.  I currently live in the West Country of England, but Surrey is always home! I am also half Italian and thus have an interest in Italian culture and genealogy.

After a career in pharmacy management spanning more than 20 years, I made the decision to look at my options as to where my professional life was heading. I wanted to expand my work portfolio within the training and writing arena; to utilise my historical and research skills along with other qualifications and years of experience. I created The Book of Me, Written by You back in the Autumn of 2012. It threads together the focus of my interests and qualifications. Enabling me to encourage others to think beyond the obvious as we analyse our own lives and those of our close family members.

Employment
  • Freelance
    present
    Having left pharmacy on a full time basis, I still practice and am registered with the professional regulator. I also undertake various continuing professional development, reviews and training work. I also present and write various presentations and training methods across pharmacy and the historical and genealogical arenas. I have successfully developed and written The Book of Me, Written by You as a series of workshops both in the literal sense and through an online version. I write a regular column for The In-Depth Genealogist which is a monthly digital magazine and I am currently working on numerous projects including writing a genealogical resource book to be published in February 2015.
  • Various
    Across the pharmacy profession I worked in a variety of settings; retail, hospital, industry, health centers and for HM Government before heading back to community pharmacy. I have had an assortment of roles; ranging from store based through to area and regional based and then head office based. I spent a great deal of time as a troubleshooter and "fixer" before moving into a series of training roles.
