Who's who

Hoppers is run by a team of committed and experienced volunteers. Let us introduce ourselves ... it's always good to put faces to names.

Susie Paddock



Rev Susie Paddock has been a trustee of Hoppers for around 20 years. She lives in Islington, North London and works for a church in Hackney. Susie is passionate about community engagement and development. 

Ann Morrisy



Ann Morisy lives in south London and has worked for the Church of England and the Methodist Church. 

Ann is particularly interested in mission and community ministry as well as in urban issues and the often neglected issue of ageing and faith. 


Keith Hogben



Keith lives in Chigwell with his cat and his collection of guitars. An active member of church, he plays in the worship team as well as a rock band. He sells fences for a living but wished that he could sell more of his books so he could retire. His children are all grown up and prove it by providing him with grandchildren just to make him feel old.

George Bush



The Rev George Bush has been Rector of St Mary-le-Bow since 2002. London-born, he trained for ordination at Ripon College Cuddesdon and briefly at United Theological College, Bangalore.  

His academic interests spanned theology, history, canon law and history of art.


Sandra Fenech



Sandra Fenech is an East London community worker and has used Hoppers for 15 years. A trustee for the

last four years, she is passionate about Hoppers - 'it's a very special place'.

Susannah Strawson

Caretaker & Bookings


Susannah lives in Five Oak Green, 5 minutes’ walk from Hoppers. She has lived in the village for 18 years with her husband Richard and they have been involved in various things at Hoppers for over 10 years, so it’s become a family concern! Susannah is a full-time mum keeping an eye on 4 children and Richard!

Thomas Strawson

Hoppers' Treasure 


Thomas is Susannah's 15 year old son and has just started in year 11 at school. He is booked to go to Tanzania next July with the school and helping his mum with the caretaking will boost funds for his trip! Thomas enjoys sport, music and has recently joined Air Cadets!
