Kate Parmaku lives in Toothill, Swindon.  Her family moved here when she was pregnant with her eldest, almost 14 years ago.

Have you always lived in this part of Swindon? 

I grew up in Park North and bought my first home in Covingham, so I was much more familiar with the other side of town.

I now live with my husband and two sons aged 12 and 13. My sisters live in Swindon too, with their families.

Why do you like living in Swindon?

At first, I really missed living in Covingham, Swindon but West Swindon has so many positive points.  My children have pretty much grown up in Lydiard Park.  There are loads of great cycle routes and walks this side of town.

Where do you work?

I’ve worked at the Aldi Distribution Centre for 22 years and I love it. Hopefully I’ll work there until I retire! My first job was in Woolworths in Swindon town centre, on the record counter.

Keen photographer. 

Photography!  I love taking photos and Swindon has loads of brilliant places.  Hagbourne Copse is just a few minutes from me and is an amazing hidden gem when the bluebells are out.  Lydiard Park, Jubilee Lake and Coate Water are also favourites along with Town Gardens, which is probably my favourite.  When the trees are in blossom it’s absolutely beautiful.  

Helping We Are Swindon to positively promote Swindon. 

I think the campaign is brilliant.  Sometimes people need reminding how much great stuff Swindon has to offer. We have great parks, activities, restaurants and shops.  

I love having photos featured on the We Are Swindon because I want to help them to  promote Swindon as a great place to live!
