Annette Lowe

Since Annette retired, she’s taken several volunteering roles to expand her horizons. One of the roles is as a guide for Jersey Heritage. Initially worried about speaking in front of a group, Annette quickly grew to enjoy the role, learning new information to continually improve her tour. In addition to this, she’s grown in confidence and made lots of new friends within the Jersey Heritage team.

Annette also helps to mend the dressing-up costumes at Mont Orgueil Castle and helps to repair the flags flown at the heritage sites. Recently, she has been putting these skills to the test and helping to sew the Jersey Cider Apple Quilt, a community project that has brought together a group of like-minded people to create a huge quilt that will star in a new exhibition at Jersey Museum.
