My name is Lyn Williams and after 20 years of happy holidaying around Tasmania, my husband Jeff and I made the move to Port Sorell six years ago.

 

I grew up in Sydney and after completing high school, became a primary school teacher. I spent many happy years teaching in Western Sydney, I continued studying, we moved to the Riverina and then the Southern Highlands of NSW and I worked in high schools, Special Needs Schools and small country schools.

 

We have lived and worked in the United Kingdom, where Jeff was born and raised, and we have children and grandchildren living mainly around the ACT and a daughter and family who live in Scotland.

 

I feel very much a part of the community here and the U3A has been a big part of that. It offers so much for so many people and I am very happy to take up a role on the committee as well as helping in the office, being a course leader and a member of the program committee.
