Joan continues to lead workshops for school parties at York’s two main museums. One day she’s a Victorian school mistress and the next a Roman. Sometimes she is simply herself with a group of thirty 7 year olds learning about some facet of the city’s history.
Much of her other time, Joan is leading a Pastoral Visiting team at St Michael le Belfrey that calls in on elderly, housebound and sick people in the church. The people she visits are very appreciative of her – she’s made lots of friends, but often comes face to face with infirmity and bereavement.
