New Arrival – Minette Moorhouse

I was born in South Africa, which is a Commonwealth Country. The British Royals have always been a part of my upbringing and I was a big supporter of Princess Diana. When I was younger, people even said I looked a little bit like her. I came to live in the UK in 2000 for the first time and then again in 2006. I’ve always wanted to be a British Citizen but had to live here for many years before I could do that. I even had to study and write an exam where I learnt all about British history. Fortunately I passed and then swore my allegiance to the Queen and became a British National.

I had to spend a few years back in my native country but have now returned permanently with my husband, Wicus, and two Labradors, Coco and Caesar.

Wicus and I have been married almost two years and Coco and Caesar are our doggy-children. We love going for walks in the countryside, in any type of weather. Even though you’ll hear me complain about the cold weather, I prefer it to the heat of Africa.I have been a Social Worker since 1996 and love working with people who need support.

I have been made to feel very welcome at New Prospects and really enjoy working here.
