Getting to know our Admin Assistant, Sue North

25/01/2021 - Training

Some of you might have already met our Admin Assistant, Sue, as she attends some group classes. It's always nice to know a little more about the person behind the uniform. Our other staff members came up with some questions for Sue to answer and here you'll find the answers!
 
Tell us about your favourite hobby
I have always enjoyed knitting, my Mum taught me when I was very young. I especially like to knit baby jumpers and dolls clothes. I also sell them on etsy.
 
What do you like to watch on TV?
I enjoy watching Emmerdale, quiz shows, especially The Chase and Tipping Point and I do like a good detective/murder mystery too.
 
Who inspires you?
My late husband Ron inspired me a lot, he was always happy, had many versatile skills and his mantra was 'If a Job's worth doing, it's worth doing well' and I try to live by this as much as I can.
 
Where is your favourite place to walk?
I'm lucky as I have lots of open farmland/fields on my doorstep so I have lots of varied walks. I don't have a particular favourite as they are all nice.      
                
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I'm not one for craving to go abroad, but I do love visiting a little village in Switzerland. I've always wanted to visit Snowdon but for one reason or another have never made it.... I am hoping to go next year.
 
What's your favourite dog breed?
I like most dog breeds, but having always had rescues my favourite has to be a good 'Heinz 57' mongrel. I like how individual they are, not just in looks, but personality too.
 
Seaside or countryside?
How can I choose? I like both. I used to have a holiday caravan by the sea so spent most weekends there; there's nothing like a bit of sea air to blow the cobwebs away. I also love a good countryside walk with a view, somewhere like the Lake District or the Yorkshire Dales where you can see rolling hills and landscape for miles around.
 
Do you have a favourite type of music?
I haven't really got a favourite, but I do like something you can sing along to like a good bit of country and western. My local radio station has Irish hour every Sunday afternoon which always gets the toes tapping,
 
What would you sing at karaoke?
Having been a Girl Guide leader for around 45years, it would have to be a classic campfire song!
