Margaret and Keith




I met Margaret and Keith a few weeks ago. Helen, who is one of their relatives, had given me their contact details and had told them about my project. As soon as I emailed them, they agreed to be part of Un tête-à-tête.

During our meeting, we talked about our jobs and I was delighted to hear them speak with such enthusiasm about what they do. Margaret works at the Broomhill Day Centre, “a charitable organisation that cares for the elderly and socially isolated” in Penicuik. Keith is a retired bus driver but is now working part-time for the Broomhill Day Centre as well. He picks up the members of the day centre from home by mini-bus and takes them back at the end of the day.

Keith is also passionate about his motorbike and they both enjoy going out on a ride together.


J’ai rencontré Margaret et Keith il y a quelques semaines. Helen, qui est leur cousine, m’avait donné leur coordonnées. Dès que je les ai contactés, ils ont accepté de participer à mon projet.

Lors de notre rencontre, nous avons parlé de nos emplois et j’ai apprécié l’enthousiasme avec lequel ils m’ont décrit ce qu’il faisait. Margaret travaille au Broomhill Day Centre, un organisme caritatif qui aide les personnes agées et isolées à Penicuik. Keith est chauffeur de bus à la retraite mais travaille maintenant à mi-temps pour le Broomhill Day Centre. Il va chercher les membres du centre chez eux et les ramène à la fin de la journée.

Keith a aussi une passion pour la moto et de temps en temps, ils aiment faire une ballade.
