Sue retired from 30 years of teaching in both primary and secondary schools in 2020. During her teaching career Sue helped students to participate in the Ten Tors Challenge and assisted her husband when he ran a school trip to the Italian Alps.
Since retiring from teaching Sue has qualified as a Nordic Walking Instructor with British Nordic Walking, become a Duke of Edinburgh Assessor and a Hill and Moorland Leader. Sue is keen to encourage others to learn to Nordic Walk because of the many benefits that this form of exercise offers including the chance to socialise whilst getting fit.
Sue enjoys hill walking, mountaineering and ski touring in various locations including the French, Italian and Swiss Alps, Bolivia, North Wales, the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Peak District, Exmoor and of course Dartmoor.
