About Shirley Kirk

I've lived most of my life in London - born in Catford, moved to West Wickham, went away to Manchester to university, moved back to Bromley, then to Ickenham, Ruislip and now live in Harefield. Having obtained a degree in Chemistry, I took a PGCE then an MA in Science Education and spent my working life as a secondary school teacher.
In my 'spare' time, I've been a dance teacher, gymnastics coach, Duke of Edinburgh's Award leader and assessor, Beaver Leader and Scout Leader. 
In 2002, I joined the Rotary Club of Dulwich and Peckham, where my father has been a member for nearly 50 years.
