Thea Oliver chats to Tiggi over coffee about her recent and massive achievement.

A resident of Draycott for many years, Thea has brought up a large family. To this day she continues to work hard for her family and as a nurse practitioner.

With a strong religious faith and values from birth, Thea has always supported her community and the clergy.  This has included acting as a lay worship assistant at churches in Cheddar, Rodney Stoke and St Peters in Draycott. More recently and after months of arduous theologian study, she has been ordained. Wearing her new clerical collar, a symbol of her devotion to God, “Putting her head above the parapet” literally!

An enlightening life story of love and courage.
