Pam Twissell on how her job in the event office pans out in a “normal” year
I have worked for Jane Tuckwell, the event director, in the event office for about 22 years and my main responsibility is to send out the passes to all the officials including the doctors, vets, paramedics, and fence judges, together with all the ones for the tradestands and hospitality and so on.
I was a PE teacher when my children were at school but I have always ridden and my children were members of the Pony Club and hunted with the Berkeley. We used to go to Badminton every year when
I was a child, and I in turn would take my children.
My job here started when a friend asked me if I could help in the box office during the event, and it was wonderful to be involved in something that I had enjoyed so much over the years. When I drive down the lane at Badminton, I always think how lucky I am to work here.
