Susan Woodward, a good friend of CSM

En route to Chile I have just received this email from Sheila Parker, wife of the late Roger Parker, Vice-Principal of the Camborne School of Mines (CSM).

"Past students of CSM will be sad to learn that Susan  Woodward died on the 5th. of October, 2014.  She used to rent half of her farmhouse to students each year - on the condition that they would help her to round up stray bullocks, and help with her famous " wine tasting and food" evenings which raised so much money for cancer research.

Many students came to love Susan and the farm, often returning in later years to stay in one of her holiday cottages with their families.

Her daughter, Sally, will be staying at Rayle Farm for a while to carry on the business."


Barbara and I got to know Susan only in the last few years, and together with many others we attended her funeral yesterday in Illogan. She was a lovely brave lady and we offer our condolences to her family.
