Josie was born in the Potteries, only five miles from Audley and moved with her husband and children to Bignall End in 1980. She is married to Ian who is part of the tech team at St James, who supports her in everything she does, including being Branch Leader for Mothers Union. This is her second time being warden, only finishing last time due to work commitments.  She hopes that being retired now will give her more time to commit to service in this role.
