Terri became a celebrant after training with Carol Poole who was then the UK President of the Australian based ‘International Federation of Celebrants’. Terri subsequently built up a very successful celebrancy business throughout both East and West Sussex, conducting Funerals, Weddings, Civil Partnership Blessings and Baby Naming Ceremonies.
Lita spent over 30 years working in the public and voluntary sectors; initially as a teacher; with a PGCE degree after achieving a BSc, and then as a safeguarding coordinator; with a CQSW degree, a Social Care Manager; with a Management Qualification, and during that time was a consultant and trainer; with a Training the Trainer Qualification.
