Hello, I’m Doreen Walker and I became church warden in 2020. Originally from Londonderry, N Ireland I grew up surrounded by faith and as a part of the wonderful family of Christchurch which set my path, and I have been lucky to find myself a part of wonderful church communities ever since. I’m married to Roger and we have a son and daughter and five grandchildren.
I trained as a nurse and thoroughly enjoyed a long career caring and helping others. After living in Albrighton for 37 years and travelling extensively we decided to up sticks for another adventure and moved to Shrewsbury four years ago. Finding a new church community was important to us, we were so warmly welcomed at St Giles that we instantly knew we were in the right place and haven’t looked back! Through the church I connected with Street Pastors and have volunteered with them for the last three years, its late nights but very rewarding. In my spare time I love baking, walking, volunteering at a primary school, playing solitaire and reading.
