Michelle Nudds Regional Officer – South East

Michelle was born and brought up on the family farm in Surrey, taking an active part in working on the farm and business up until leaving college.  Moving away from home and farming, my career took me into the Printing, Advertising, Marketing and Communications sector, achieving significant success working on high profile advertising and marketing campaigns for both commercial and charitable organisations.

Deciding my passion for the Countryside was greater than city life, in 2006 a job opportunity with the Countryside Alliance as Regional Director became available and the decision for a change of lifestyle was made.

Now with 4 working dogs, a passion for game and clay shooting and all things Countryside, the chance once again to work in a regional capacity for Shooting and Conservation is an opportunity I am really looking forward to, plus getting to know members across; Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey and IOW.

Hannah Turner Regional Officer South East

Hannah grew up helping on a local dairy farm and riding stables. She has been involved in shooting from a young age, starting off plinking with air rifles before going on to take up shotgun shooting. Hannah beats on a number of shoots and enjoys the odd game day during the season.  Hannah enjoys both clay’s and game but says pigeon shooting has to be her top sporting day out. Hannah is also a keen horse rider and fly fisher when she finds the time.

Hannah has a background as an Operations Manager for a charity specialising in supporting young people and has many years of event planning and partnership working experience. She enjoys working with like-minded people to promote field sports, the eating of game and to generally improve the public’s understanding of what we do. If you are interested in working with Hannah in the Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire/Bedfordshire/Hertfordshire area please get in touch.
