Female Lives in Canford Heath address verified

Hi, I have lived on Canford Heath since 2001; we have a dog and three children.  I attend a number of groups on the Heath; some church based.
I feel privileged to live so close to the Heath and love walking our collie. 
I am an "at home" mum; love to cook.
I am positive minded and enjoy much of that which Canford Heath has to offer.
