Hi, my name is Clare and I am the General Manager at Kempston. I am a qualified nurse with 27 years of experience. I won't bore you with the detail, you can read that on my CV!
I am married with two adult children, the youngest of whom got married in October 2021. I will be a grandma next (she says, with crossed fingers and toes). I love animals and have always had dogs. My current dog is Pickle, a Burmese Swiss Mountain dog crossed with I don't know what because he is a miniature version.
My hobbies include reading and baking, my most recent bake being my son's wedding cake. I had never done a stacked cake before.
My greatest achievement since being at Kempston is building the team that is so strong it took us straight to 'Good' in our first CQC inspection - Outstanding here we come!
