Hi, I am Dianne.

I have worked for Learning Resources for 25 years, recently returning from a career break. During this time, I completed some home improvement projects, as I'm an avid fan of DIY.

Aside from DIY, in my spare time I enjoy sports, particularly Badminton and Tennis. You can find my favourite book, Khaled Hosseini’s ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’, on our library catalogue.
