Janet is the Chair/Secretary of the Carlisle and District Egyptology Society, a post she has held for five years. She is also a founder member of the Society. She as planned many visits for the Society to Museums with Egyptology Collections including the Turin Museum.

Her interest in Egyptology stems from a Nile Cruise she took after her retirement from a post of a lecturer in Business Administration at a Further Education College.
