Meet The Speaker, Sue

Sue Medcalf is an accidental author of a series of books about a badger called Itchybald Scratchet. At 57 she never expected to write a book and now she has seven books. The series of books came from a telephone conversation with her sister, who had badgers digging up her back garden. She asked Sue what she could do to stop the digging.  So Sue did some research on their habitat and was hooked! Sue is now involved in an ongoing writing project, capitalising on her interest and research into badgers and wildlife in general, along with their behaviour and habitat.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
