Being a farmer's daughter and with her brother hill farming, Sue has always been concerned for the welfare of farming communities. She is also a bereavement visitor with proven listening skills vital to the chaplaincy role. Sue foresees online registration as an unwelcome demand on farmers' already limited time. Sue is keen to be a Borderlands presence at livestock markets.
"As a farmer's daughter, I understand the loneliness and isolation farmers endure from time to time, this is one of my main concerns. I want to be able to listen to and walk alongside farmers and their families who ask for our help."
Sue works with the Farmers Community Network for Herefordshire and is a member of the Agricultural Chaplains Association. She is also a licensed Lay Reader and Diocesan Pastoral Network Facilitator.
