Janet spent her early years travelling the world, including visits to Saudi Arabia, Nigeria and India. “I loved living abroad, it was so much fun to experience lots of cultures different to my own”. Janet has four children and three grandchildren to whom she’s devoted. She started baking when she was a teenager and has not stopped since. She is well known for her baking in her local area: “I always have baked goods in the house because you just never know when someone is going to drop in”. She says baking is easy, adding, “It’s no big deal”.

Janet also enjoys gardening and attending her local Catholic Church. She regularly takes part in fundraising events to help disadvantaged children all over the world as it is something that is close to her heart.
