Hilary Grundy

Hilary Grundy I live in rural east Norfolk, between Norwich and Yarmouth. We moved here 7 years ago from the Midlands where we had lived for 20 years.I am married, with two grown-up children and two grandchildren. My career was principally spent in health and safety. My final appointment before retirement was as Director of Health and Safety for a large heavy industrial manufacturing plc. Quite a contrast to the fields of sugar beet which surround me where I live now. After successfully gaining my Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety, I became a Corporate Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health, and Chairman of my local branch in Worcester. Immediately after qualifying, I embarked on a 3 year course with the Open University and gained my Certificate, then a Diploma in Management. After 10 years of working at a strategic level, I set up my own successful health and safety consultancy, working for a wide variety of organisations from multi-site shops, to highly academic organisations. Always a believer in lifelong learning, along the way I developed interests outside of health and safety. I was one of the first to train as an Image Consultant when that concept first came to England from the USA 25 years ago. I then took an interest in Holistic Interior Design, and completed a home study course. I became a Reiki Master, receiving my training at Claridge House. I have always knitted and have been lucky enough to use my retirement to study knitting, and the knitting process in greater depth. I have mastered nearly everything, but still have a love/hate relationship with lace!
