Janet was a dynamic personality who was once a BBC radio producer in London. When she retired she moved to a tiny cottage in Kington opposite the village church. Nothing was too much for Janet and she was deeply involved in the life of the village and was host to several mini meets at her home. Members from America and Canada, Australia and New Zealand were among the numerous members who met an loved her.
Her passion was her garden, her art and her dogs. In the past few years she took over a vacant shop in the village and opened a gallery where she also taught art. In 2014 she organised a mini meet at her gallery with the help of her close friends madmum and Stephie20.
Her art was wide ranging and included many mediums, watercolours and pastels being among them.
Janet will be sadly missed by her many friends.
