About The Author: Avril Dalziel Saunders

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.

Along with a friend in Glasgow, Avril set up a worldwide social networking web forum called ‘GlesgaChinas’ This was purely established as a hobby with assistance from another two of her friends, one in Glasgow and the other in Wales, who help to moderate it.This has now evolved, and superceded by a GlesgaChinas social network group on Facebook


It was originally set up for Glaswegians who have settled worldwide, as well as those residing in Glasgow. To their delight, the forum has become very popular for anyone interested in Scotland and it has now also attracted American, Canadian, Australian and English members too.
