Meet the local – The Parishioner interviews Katie

(Parishioner) – great to meet you tell us a bit about yourself!

Hi I’m Katie, mum of 2 (plus 1 fur baby!). I like keeping busy and my passions include designing and decorating rooms in our family home.

(Parishioner) – How long have you been in the area, tell us what you love about Ash & Ash Vale?

I’ve been blessed to be a local all my life, and I really love the sense of community. As a youngster I went to Walsh Infants and Juniors, and then Ash Manor, so I’m Ash through and through! I love the local community and especially the groups at The Chapel on Wharf Rd where I have spent many happy hours with the kids.

(Parishioner) What’s good in the holidays around here – Anything you’d recommend to a newcomer in the area?

Our favourite thing to do is “Picnic and Play” at The Chapel on Wednesdays in August. We love all the activities and games – and Neil’s pancakes of course! We’ve been to Forest Kids Ash, which is great fun too. I would recommend both of those to anyone.

(Parishioner) – a little bird told us you have a cleaning business? Tell us more about it!

Yes, I’m self employed, serving the local community doing cleaning for local people walkable from Shawfield School area. I’m very passionate about my cleaning, and have a good eye for detail. It’s what I love to do!

(Parishioner) – Great to meet you Katie, thanks for being our “Meet the Local” this week!
