Heather Field (26th September 2020)
Heather Field is one of the liveliest people I have interviewed. Her life is just so full you wonder what on earth is coming next.
Heather is a teacher and a full time mum and that should be enough for anyone but then add into that lots of after-school activities, skiing, being heavily involved in the organising of the Three Peaks Fell race and walking on the Yorkshire moors.
Heather also has an artistic side which saw her introduced to the Aireborough Gilbert & Sullivan Society as a babe in arms and led her all the way to producing and directing Magic of Gilbert & Sullivan songs from Iolanthe & Ruddigore in 2020.
When you listen to Heather’s life unfolding it comes as no surprise that she got married on the edge of the Grand Canyon in the USA – where else would suit this live wire?
Such a great life story to listen to.
