What a fantastic opportunity!

I'd just like to add a little info on Natasha Pulley, MBE, alumni of Marjon too, who was the first female ever to train a field gun team and also amongst the first two women to run in the event.  Described as an inspirational leader, instructor and role model, Natasha is a very humble person who has recently left the Royal Navy after over 32 years but is from Cornwall and was based in Plymouth during her time in the Navy.
