Eileen Tomlin trained as a Primary School teacher specializing in music. When she took early retirement and had more opportunity to devote time to church activities, she trained as a Reader (Licensed Lay Minister) and was licensed in 2005. Her main ministry has always been with older people, visiting those who are housebound, in care homes and hospitals. As a life-long resident of Malvern, she has contacts in other churches and has helped out during vacancies. She is a keen cyclist and gardener, a Brownie Guider and is a member of a recorder group and sings with local choirs.
