Helen Crotty member Hi I’m Helen, I joined the Friends when my oldest was in year 10, she is now in Uni so I’m feeling very old! I now have two more daughters at The Hamble School, one in year 8 and one in year 9. My favourite things are coffee cake and Prosecco and of course dressing up as an angel in my spare time!
