Penny started life in Ashtead, Surrey before moving to Dorking and being educated locally. She worked in the travel industry for many years and was fortunate enough to escort clients on some of their overseas tours and adventures. Penny has lived in Horsham and North Holmwood, and now resides in the village of Brockham with her husband and three children. She enjoys the 'good life' on her allotment, tending to her six chickens. Having three children means she can regularly be seen volunteering with local charities and clubs.
