Joan Linley

Acomb Babies Leader

I'm a retired health visitor born and bred in Acomb. Two days a week I look after my two squabbling grandaughters in Bingley.

At Gateway I run Acomb Babies, a group for new parents. It's great to watch people make new friends and grow in confidence.

I am also deputy safeguarding coordinator for Gateway, not much fun but neccessary.

In between times I enjoy keeping up with old friends and new, hanging out in City Screen, eating cake, sewing and thinking about riding my bike and swimming.
