The 41-year-old from Telford ditched her job at West Mercia Police’s Shrewsbury switchboard.

She took a career turn and now entertains children with face-painting and balloon modelling.

Today she speaks about the joys of being a children’s entertainer as the Shropshire Star celebrates the fifth anniversary of the Weekend supplement, saying: “I love my job because it’s fun and I’m making people happy.”

See the Weekend supplement in Saturday's Shropshire Star.
