She joined us with her husband Phillip and their two 17yr old children.  Prior to responding to her call to ordination Susan held a variety of part time jobs both paid and voluntary, and also served as a Reader in the Exning Benefice. She believes family to be very important and values their support and care over the months of her training already completed and that which is yet to come.

In her spare time she likes to read anything from thrillers, historical novels to any relaxing books of the Fford genre. She also loves crafts and occasionally can be found helping out her husband with the calving at a nearby farm. She is looking forward to getting to know the parish and hopes you will say hi to her when you see he in the street.
