Sue is originally from Matlock in Derbyshire but now lives in the Wylye Valley. She has an active life away from work playing badminton, walking, spinning, gardening and just enjoying life with her husband Andy and respective families.
Welcome Beth Doherty, new editorial all-rounder for ‘New Valley News’. Beth’s interest in journalism started while she was studying at Sussex University where she wrote for the student news organisation ‘The Tab’. After finishing her Linguistics degree in 2019, she spent half a year gathering industry experience, interning at publications such as ‘Cosmopolitan’, ‘Time Out London’ and ‘The Telegraph’.
During her time in Brighton, Beth gained an appreciation for local shops and cafes. Since being back in Salisbury, she has used her Instagram blog to write about some of her favourite local spots. Now, she has brought this interest to New Valley News. A passionate writer, Beth loves to write contemporary features and will never turn down an invitation to a quirky cafe.
