Team HIP

About Emily

HiP is a self governing community group but we do have some team members who help to keep it raucous yet organised! 

There is some info on them below and if you
 come along to a meeting then say hello. 

We also wanted to add in a special page about 
who was one of the founder's of the group and is sadly
 no longer with us, so please do read about 
this amazing lady by clicking on her picture

What did you want to be when you grew up?
Besides the obvious Ballerina/Astronaut/Rockstar/Vet combination, there were two things I wanted... 1. to grow my hair really long and 2.to be a violinist...  So far I have yet to learn the violin, and up until about a year ago was regularly shaving my head. Fail.

HIP Star Regular

We have many members of HiP who have become a star regular by either religiously attending meetings, getting involved or crocheting till their fingers bleed for us. We wanted to hi-light these amazing people with an occasional profile of some of them so expect to meet some of ours stars.
