Sue Henchley

I have lived in the Forest of Dean since 1987, having moved from St Albans in Hertfordshire.  I trained as a physiotherapist including the treatment of children, and people with all types of disabilities.

I also took a degree in Ergonomics when I realised that treating people when things go worng is only half the battle.  I also needed to correct postures and practices which can increase the chance of injuries.

I am interested in politics and have been a local councillor on the Forest of Dean Council.  At present I am Chair of Governors at the Heart of the Forest Special School at Speech House, a job I enjoy very much.  I am also a Trustee at Forest Sensory Services, a facility and resource centre for people with sight and hearing problems,  Another of my interests is as a board member and volunteer of the Co-Operative which governs Mitcheldean Community Library.

I love working on the board of The Orchard Trust.  It performs very important functions, and there are so many interest interesting things going on there.

  • Residents from a local care home visited the Orchard Trust activity park and smallholding site.  They tried out the park equipment and met some of the animals.  It is fantastic to see a range of people using the activity park and getting so much out of it.  We welcome anyone to come and visit the site and use the equipment, we just ask that you please call Phill or George on 01594 861359 to let them know you are coming.
