Anne MacKenzie





Originally from Dudley and latterly Redditch,I moved to Cyprus with my husband Malc in 2020 after coming here on holiday for 20 years.

My career has been quite diverse including Business Management, IT design, Telecommunications and Teaching, but the role that fed my soul was Head of Operations for YMCA Worcestershire working with young people and vulnerable adults.

I love cooking particularly using Cypriot ingredients. I am very close to my family and have recently discovered an interest in refurbishing furniture.

Appointed Shop Co-ordinator in December 2021.
