Melek De-Wint

I joined the group in March 2017 as I was making a career change from a job with an international charity based in London to something more local in Oxfordshire, where I recently moved into. Having a 2½ year old little girl, I have been familiar with the Family Grapevine and it was my main source of useful information when I first became a mother. So, I know its value first hand and I wanted to offer the same resource and value to the new community I have recently became a part of. Since I have joined, I have found the chief editors most helpful and supportive and I am very lucky to share the county with another editor, whom I am looking forward to working with.
