Character[edit]

In 1989 she becomes a school governor.[1] In 1990 Chrissy attempts to mobilise the neighbours in to protesting against the building of Brookside Parade near their homes, a campaign that is ultimately fruitless. Later in the year she is made redundant, however later gets a job as a school secretary.[2]
