June - Family support worker

New Family Support Worker

Hello my name is June Willis I was born in 1959 at my parents’ dairy farm, Golden Nook Farm Hargrave Chester. I grew up on the farm with my brother and three sisters.

In my younger years I went to Waverton School and the Holy Family Convent school in Wrexham until it closed in 1972 and then went on to Christleton school until I was 16.

I went on to study a Pre Nursing Course at the Chester College of Further Education in Handbridge before going on to train as a nurse.

As I didn’t settle at this I turned my attention to looking after children and whilst looking after children I studied to become a Nursery Nurse and qualified in 1979.

In 2017 I felt a calling to become a Pastoral Worker in my parish and after doing a three year course I was licensed in Chester Cathedral in 2019  by The Right Reverend Bishop of Birkenhead Keith Sinclair.

At present I work two days a week for my youngest sister as a Pharmacy Dispensing Assistant.

Before Covid 19 I was helping in a Voluntary role as a Creche Volunteer at St John’s Wesley Methodist Church in Chester where I enjoyed getting alongside the children and playing with them.

In my spare time I like to  knit, crochet, jigsaw puzzles and to do word puzzles. I also enjoy gardening.

I am looking forward to supporting farming families in my new role as a family support worker.
