Who are you? I’m Naomi Sherwood, getting on a bit now, originally from Manchester moving down to Ely three years ago this month.
What do you do?
I am business development manager for MetroRod Cambridge based in Ely and I am organising through MetroRod the very first Ely Hero Awards. First and foremost, I’m a wife and a mummy to the best boys in the world.
Why would people know you?
Not too sure, don’t know if I’ve lived here long enough yet, but if anyone has seen the promotion surrounding the Ely Hero Awards maybe through that.
