Betty Oldmeadow

Betty Oldmeadow from the Isle of Sheppey (Kent, England) is a regular walker into the island’s nature for long hours. Jealously conscious of the scenes, sights, local history and heritage of the part of England she lives in, she writes passionately about them. And her eco-concerns have a universal appeal. Having done a two-year commercial course at Chatham Technical School for Girls, she was Secretary to the Managing Director of the Co-operative Society (which dominated island trade in the 1970’s) and to the Engineer and Manager of Sheppey Water Board, besides playing various secretarial roles with local Engineering Companies. Prior to retirement in 2001, she held the post of School Secretary in a primary school for 24 years. Post retirement, she trained as a Classroom Assistant and worked on a voluntary basis. She encourages children’s literacy skills and corresponds with friends and writers in India. A few of her writings have been published in India, in The Hans India daily, the Jayanti literary quarterly, the Muse India literary e-journal. She is also a participant in the Your Space forum of Muse India.
