Hannah and Katie assist their Mother Anne-Marie and STwinstep-Dad  Darren with a variety of tasks with energy and enthusiasm often before and after school and like nothing more than getting their working clothes on to help out.  Lady Scott said “it is an absolute pleasure to award The Game Chick of the Year to Hannah and Katie, they are a shining example to us all and richly deserve recognition for their efforts”.
