Annette is married to Graham and lives in Virginia Water with their son Will. Annette first came to Christ Church through the toddler group when she moved to Virginia Water with baby Will from Tunbridge Wells and was struck by the warmth of the Church Family and pleasure of being part of something greater than the sum of the individual parts. Annette has worked at the Church since September 2013; first as a job share with Lesley looking after the Church Administration; and since May 2017 as Operations Manager managing the non-clerical aspects of Church life. Annette enjoys spending time in the local community and is Secretary of the Virginia Water Community Association and has been a volunteer with Home-Start, Runnymede and Woking since 2010. Prior to her work at Christ Church, Annette has enjoyed her involvement as a mid day supervisor at Christ Church School and a Weight Watchers Leader. Pre baby, Annette was an IT Manager working for a number of managed contracts including Dresdner Kleinwort Benson; before joining AXA PPP Healthcare in Tunbridge Wells and Bristol as Technical Development Manager/Transition Manager; and latterly Service Delivery Manager for a Media company in Covent Garden, London. Annette was brought up in Bromley, in the Roman Catholic faith to parents that were both Head Teachers of Catholic schools in London. Since working full time, Annette has a neglected allotment in Stroude Road and would like to have more time to enjoy gardening, reading, cooking and family adventures – the bigger and longer the better!
