Avril Dalziel Saunders was born in Glasgow. Like most families, life was a struggle after the Second World War. Her parents worked hard to make ends meet, but held their heads high.
As far as Avril and her brother were concerned, they felt privileged and were brought up with lots of love, honesty and respect.
Avril has held jobs with major companies throughout her career, among them a large international company in Glasgow City Centre and Thames TV in London. She moved to Surrey in 1971 with her husband and baby son. Within the next 6 years, the family was blessed with two daughters.
She is now a grandmother.
