About Lizzie

Lizzia Baily at Cobnor Hi there!  I have Congenital Muscular Dystrophy.  My older sister Alexandra also has CMD.  I also have an older brother, George who is married and lives nearby.

I live with my parents and my sister on a smallholding in Sidlesham.  We have 3 dogs, 6 cats, a goldfish, 4 ponies, pigs, sheep, geese, ducks, guinea fowl and chickens who all keep us entertained. 

I joined the Wellspring committee in 1999 when I was in year 10 at Manhood Community College.  While I was at Chichester College doing my A levels, I became the editor of Wellspring.  I also write a page in each edition of the newsletter about my thoughts and experiences.  To read my latest article, click here.

I completed my BA(Hons) Childhood Studies: Early Years at University College Chichester in 2005, and now I work part time as a teaching assistant at a local primary school, doing booster literacy work with the children in the junior classes.

I run a craft club for children aged 4 to 11 on Saturdays from the art studio in my garden (see articles below) and have also run workshops for the Aiming High for Disabled Children project (see Creative Heads articles). 

I am extremely pleased to announce that Wellspring has been given funding by The Alchemy Foundation which is enabling me to offer FREE PLACES to children with disabilities and special needs and/or their brothers and sisters at my club. If you would like to know more about the club and would like to book places, please visit my website and contact me.

Please email me if you would like to contribute anything to the newsletter.  We really appreciate hearing from our readers.
