Jill Faux spent her working life with the Pre-school Playgroups Association, culminating in working as National Adviser for 10 years. Following that, as Early Years Consultant for Cumbria County Council, she produced reports on Children’s Services, Training for early years workers and Children’s Library Services and became Chair of the Early Years Partnership before she retired.
Over her working life, she has contributed to a number of publications including a training manual for social workers on implementing the Children Act for the National Children’s Bureau and for SSAFA workers inspecting armed forces facilities overseas.
Since retiring she has written short stories and poetry as a member of the Mungrisdale Writers Group and the last chapter in Insights from the Playgroup Movement published by Trentham Books.
Granny’s War has enabled her to delve into her family past and remember many happy childhood times. It has also made her realise how little she knew of her Granny’s long life and how much she wishes she had asked more questions. It has been enormously rewarding.
Jill has lived in Cumbria with her husband Geoffrey, former mathematics adviser for the county, for the last 30 years. They have two sons and six grandchildren.
