Vivianne (Viv)

viv on broad haven beachWhen I left school at 15 I went to work in greyhound racing kennels.

I just wanted to drop you a line to say how happy I am with Viv. I was a bit apprehensive changing the boys walker but she has a lovely way with them. HC

I got married at 18 and have been married for 43 years. We moved to Pembrokeshire in 2013 from Surrey. I have two daughters, four grand children and one great grand child.

I am CRB checked.

I want to let you know we had such a terrific experience with Viv. As you said in an email to me – She is lovely. She came by the night before she was going to watch Toby to be sure she knew where to find us. I really liked that. She was there early on the day and was so kind and nice to Toby.

I left with a light heart because I had confidence she would take great care of him. He is old so she carried him all the way to the beach front for a walk. I am sure that was a bundle of fun for her. She took him shopping. He does enjoy going into stores so he probably thought she was grand. And, the reason for shopping was to buy me a birthday gift! I was really touched by her thoughtfulness and generosity. She is really a sweet and caring individual.

You can be sure we will use your service again if we are in the area – but only if we can have Viv! Thank you so much, WC
