Dr Lesley Bromley has joined the MWHG as a Trustee this year. Lesley was born in the Midlands, in Wolverhampton, but has known the Manhood, and Selsey in particular, for the last 50 years. Initially her family came to Selsey on holiday, renting accommodation at Platten House, which stood in Clayton Road where Clayton Court now stands. After annual visits for 18 years, her Parents moved to Selsey in 1975, whilst she was studying Medicine in London. She spent more and more time in Selsey and as her Parents became older and needed more help, she spent most weekends in Sussex.
The house her parents lived in became hers on the death of her mother in 2001, and she moved here full time but continued to work in London up to 2010.
She worked as a Consultant Anaesthetist at UCLH in London, with a special interest in Pain Management, and also developed an interest in Medical Education and was Director of Medical Education for the Trust for 10 years. Now in retirement she is still teaching, but she teaches doctors how to teach these days.
She has been a bird watcher for more than 30 years, greatly enjoys walking as a pastime and since being a Girl Guide, has enjoyed knowing about the creatures who live around us. She lives in a house with a particular history which is part of the heritage of Selsey and since living here has become more and more interested in the history of the Manhood, from St Wilfred to the present day. She attends church and sings in the choir in Sidlesham and after 50 years of being here she is starting to feel like a native!
