I'm the Education and Groups Manager for Cullercoats Bike & Kayak. Having spent 14 years as a secondary PE teacher I understand what's needed to make a great educational visit to the coast. I'm also a passionate promoter of healthy and active lifestyles for young people.
Check out my Schools & Youth Groups pages for information on what we offer, including how these are tied to the curriculum.
My favourite thing is being out on the water on my SUP board with my family tagging along on kayaks, so it's great that I get to work on the water too! As a former PE and RE teacher I enjoy working with school and youth groups, but don't expect an easy ride as I like to ensure everyone goes away having improved their kayak and SUP ability. I'm very proud to have passed my RLSS Beach Lifeguard qualification in 2016, especially as everyone else in the group was male and several years my junior. I live here in Cullercoats Village and love my life by the seaside.
