Rev Tim Hawkins
I am the local vicar and am married to Helen, a teacher, with three grown up children Andrew, Caroline and Sarah. In my spare time I like to write and play music of all styles. I paint in watercolours and have just completed my third novel.
Rev. Peter Butterfield
I am a former secondary school science teacher and have also had many years experience as a governor in primary and secondary schools. My working life has also included scientific research, photography, and currently, as an electrician and minister. As part of my ministry I am a chaplain to the Sea Cadets. I enjoy being a part of St Maddern's School and have taken some responsibility in the areas of finance and premises and science and maths.
Mrs Jackie Meyers
I have lived in the immediate area for over 30 years, am married to Stuart, have 3 children and 6 grandchildren and am a member of the Methodist Church in the village.
By profession I was a teacher, which included working in various parts of the country and for a number of years, at St. Maddern's; but have also worked on our farm in Devon and ran a Tea Garden at Trengwainton for several years.
I am very committed to all children receiving a broad and challenging education with a christian ethos, believing this is their right and helps to provide them with a strong base to build a good life. Our younger son received his primary education at St. Maddern's and I am glad to be a governor here.
I have been living in Penzance for 10 years and visiting Cornwall since childhood. I have worked as a secondary school Geography teacher, and as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language to many nationalities. I am married to a retired ordained Anglican minister and we have two sons and a daughter and three grandchildren. We have worked on Tyneside, in Singapore for twenty years in an Asian international training community and for fifteen years in Bristol in a theological training college community.
Since living in Penzance I have become involved in the Cornish language community, learning, teaching and singing the language. I enjoy music, sport, especially ball games, gardening and exploring the coasts, countryside , history and stories of Cornwall.
