We are a friendly married couple. Both have been in education most of our lives, Louette a music teacher and Hugh geography and physical education and then a head teacher. Now retired, Hugh is a qualified tourist guide, keen hiker, restorative justice practitioner and an education consultant in Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. I love a wide range of sports, am interested in history, read quite widely and am energised by people. I have been fortunate in having traveled extensively in Europe, Australia, Southern and Central Africa, and limited parts of the USA and Asia.
