Lucy Kathleen Hunt
Where did you grow up?
Just down the road in Littleport.
Ely Community College and Cambridge Regional College before gaining NVQ Levels 2 & 3 in Childcare and Education via an apprenticeship at ACE Nursery School in Cambridge, where I then went on to work for nearly 10 years.
Your current role at King’s Ely and how long you have been a member of staff here:
I’m an Early Years Practitioner at King’s Ely Acremont Nursery and I’ve been here for 12 years this month (April)!
What do you enjoy most about working here?
I’m very proud to work at King’s Ely and love the joy, fun and adventure that comes with working with small children.
Hobbies/interests outside of school:
22 months ago (long over due!), I began a weight loss journey, which has seen me lose 8 and a half stone so far. Alongside a change in my diet I did something I never thought I would do, join a gym! This has now become a massive part of my life and I really enjoy working out and being more active. I also enjoy sewing and crafting, especially making Christmas decorations that I sometimes sell at craft fairs.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Exactly what I’m doing now!
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
I would like to be able to pause time, as it seems to be rushing past far too quickly.
What was the last book you read?
‘The Northern Lights Lodge’ by Julie Caplin.
What song are you most likely to sing at a karaoke?
Ooh, it’s tough to choose just one but I’m a true 80’s girl so think it would have to be my favourite song of all time, ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey.
What is your favourite film?
I love anything with jazz hands and a good soundtrack but I’ll remain in the 80’s and say ‘The Breakfast Club’.
Do you have any phobias or fears?
I really don’t like being up close to anything with flapping wings or a beak!
Name three things you would want with you if stranded on a desert island for a week:
I couldn’t manage a week without music so a radio is a must, my craft trolley with all my bits and pieces in to keep me occupied and my iPad that I read most of my books on.
