Jenny - Girl About Cheshire

All About Jenny


Hi, I’m Jenny. A thirty-something Mum of two little girls, and along with my Husband Mark, we live just outside Warrington. I am born and raised in Cheshire and having spent my University days in Lancaster and then six months travelling through Australia and New Zealand I settled back in my beloved home county.


On returning to the UK I enjoyed several years working in the travel industry (and all the perks that went along with it!) before joining the corporate world as a legal PA for a construction firm organising business travel and events. After starting a family, I decided to take a step back and I now enjoy spending time with my girls as well as working part-time running music and sensory classes for children.


In my role as Girl About Cheshire I am so excited to introduce you to where I live and why I love living here so much. The county is situated in the North West of England, close to the Welsh border and sandwiched between Manchester and Liverpool. With the historic Roman City of Chester at its heart, the rolling countryside that surrounds it gives way to unique chocolate-box villages and fascinating market towns.


I love to discover hidden gems and create amazing memories along the way. Follow along to discover exciting day trips, exquisite eateries and independent hotel and spa stays. Perfect to share with your friends, family and loved ones.
