MY STORY – ISABEL

Full name – Isabel.

Age – Unknown. But you humans would class me as OLD!

My Role at Lancombe – Queen of Fairies/Entertainments

Background – Myself and my Fairies migrated to Lancombe in Spring 2014. I heard through the Fairy Post that there was an opening in some woods, with lots of trees to make houses in. We weren’t very satisfied with the accommodation we were staying in, so decided to make a move. Since then, we have built larger houses and a very happy Fairy Village. We have also adopted Marvin the friendly Hobbit in this time and Elvis the Elf. They generally mix well with the fairies, so much so, Marvin arranged for his playboy Mansion to be built when he decided to be a permanent resident in our Fairy Colony, we can’t get the fairies out of there at times!

This is me on my favourite sign watching over the woods!

Why were you the best candidate for the role? – The fairies could not have moved without me. As the Queen of the woods, I am responsible for their welfare, training and social care. It’s a big responsibility as there are hundreds of fairies here. I was officially crowned Queen in June 2014. It went to a public fairy vote, and I was considered the best candidate for the role.

I have superb letter writing skills, and as well as looking after the fairies, I make sure every letter that is left in our post box is responded to in a timely manner. I have service level agreements with the owners and if these are breached I will receive a verbal warning and then be taken through retraining before any disciplinary action is started. At the end of the day, nobody wants children going without their fairy letters.
I am an excellent trainer. Each new baby fairy receives flying lessons, this helps them with understanding their Sky Flying Code and also to ensure they are able to avert danger wherever possible.

Interests – Being the best fairy colony we can be. We love living in Lancombe’s woods and do not want to jeopardize this. I particularly love seeing children in our woods, reading their letters and writing replies. It’s wonderful when they find their letters and seeing the excitement on their faces is a pleasure. I attend National Fairy Meetings on a quarterly basis, and we have been top of the country for the last 3 years. That’s a massive achievement, I’m very proud of my fairies. My greatest hobby is making fairy dust, and we do like a good fairies wings up, where we all get together, eat Leaf Stew, Berry Con Carne and magic the night away.

Aspirations for the future – To continue to be Queen of these woods. I’m hoping there won’t be a Coup anytime soon and I lose my crown, so I have to keep thinking of new and innovative ways to keep the fairies happy. That’s why I allowed a Hobbit and an Elf into our colony. I am currently lobbying for our own pool and gymnasium, so please keep your fingers crossed for us.
