My name is Linda Baharier & I have lived in a National Trust house since 2002 originally with my late Mother and now with my nieces and great niece wandering in and out.

I enjoy my garden, growing fruit and vegetables as much as I can, I also keep chickens and have two cats that keep me on my toes

I did work for the Local Authority and was active in Unison, but because of the first round of cuts in 2011 and my health I now work from home in accounting. I am active in my own village being a Parish Councillor, Trustee of the Local Village Hall and sports association.

I have been active in TANT for 16 years and I am the first person you reach through the Helpline. The helpline is manned 24 hrs a day & 7 days a week.
