PCC Secretary
Mrs Gillian Woods

I have been married to Geoff for 48 years and we have two daughters and seven grandchildren.

I was baptised by full immersion at New Milton Baptist church in January 1966.  Geoff and I moved to Kent in 1976.  I started attending St.Peters with the children around 1988.  We moved away from the area for 6 years, but returned in 2004, when we retired, having finished our working life with owning and running our own 10 bedroomed guest house.

It has been my privilege to serve God and His church in Ditton over a number of years. This is my second term as Church Warden. I also seek to serve God in the other areas of my life such as primary school teacher and trade unionist.
