Sue first got to know SYC in Reading in 2017 through her role as a church. She loves to be out and about meeting people, ably assisted by her dog Eevee. Eevee ensures that regular walks are taken in all weathers! Sue is a widow and has three adult children.
Her greatest achievement? – Well, her family might mention the rare occasions when she manages not to burn whatever she puts into the oven!

Aaron is a wonder with the guitar, and we’ve had many a lively, hilarious discussion around the table with our young people and mentors led by him! We’re glad he’ll be around for a bit longer in Reading (but Aaron, don’t forget to go on an adventure somewhere exotic (not too long) and come back and share your stories with us!)

Leon Collyer grew up on a small farm in Suffolk and got to know SYC whilst the Assistant Vicar in the Whitley Parish. He is now the Vicar of a rural parish back in Suffolk where he is also managing the family farm. “My greatest achievement in life had been getting away from the family farm and following the call to ministry. I wonder if returning to agriculture with ministry might prove to be an even greater achievement!”
