Sharon Harvey - Rector's Warden

Music has always been important to Sharon, who danced, sang and played instruments from an early age. She excelled as a Girl Guide and received her Queen’s Guide award from Lady Baden Powel in person.  Sharon and David married in 1977 having met at a school production of The Merchant of Venice. After working at Cambridge University she joined the local branch of the John Lewis Partnership where she rose to senior management as Staff Trainer.

David, Sharon and their two children, Christopher and Vicki, moved to Guernsey in 1997 after David, a Partner in Deloittes, was asked to join the local branch.  Despite struggling with cancer and heart problems, Sharon has been drawn to voluntary care work, particularly with The Specials Gym Club, which provides after school care for children with special needs.  She is a member of the Bereavement Service and has trained to diploma level in counselling.  Becoming a grandmother was her latest life changing experience and she can’t wait for the arrival of her third grandchild in September!
