I live with husband Andrew and our son Christopher, in a small village called Mundon in Essex where Andrew works on Mundon Hall Farm with the Springstep goats (www.springstep-dairy.co.uk). I'm very involved in village activities, including many years as a parish councillor, and a reporter on village affairs for the local newspapers.

We have lived in Mundon village for 25 years, and I have an archive of information including history, church records, graveyard survey, publications, maps, scrapbooks and so on available for people to see. There is also a Mundon Information Booklet 2005 –2006 available for £4.00 including postage. Further information on the village is available on the Springstep Dairy website. 

My career (1979 – 1993) was in catering, and local authority purchasing and marketing. Since parenthood, I have undertaken a variety of roles including journalism, voluntary work of all sorts, and Emergency and Community Team Leader for the local Women's Royal Voluntary Service.  I currently work part time in mental health and disability project development, leaving me time to pursue my canine interests and spend time with my family.

All the dogs at Northey live primarily as family pets. Our aim is to breed happy, healthy dogs.  Although many of the dogs we have bred live with their owners as family pets or show dogs, it is important to us that they may be also used for their original purpose, and are ‘fit for their original purpose’. Our gundogs are used as shooting companions, and we eat the game we shoot (recipes available!).
