If you are going to have a change of career and lifestyle what better place to do that than in Milford on Sea.
Susie Kendall now lives in the village and started her professional life as a solicitor in the City, she then retrained to deliver communications skills training to business schools and large organisations on a freelance basis.
However, she really wanted to work more in her local community and came up with the idea of New Forest Senior Moves, combining her professional background with a desire to do something worthwhile and work with other local businesses.
She moved to Milford from London with her family five years ago, and has since acquired a kayak, several pairs of wellies and a dog! It was her husband’s experience as a fledgling journalist on the Lymington Times ten years previously and a strong love of the sea that drew them back to the area.
Susie said; “We knew we wanted to be part of a strong community, but having lived in London for 11 years we didn’t want to live in a town. Milford ticked all the boxes. I love that I can pop into Milford at any time of the week, and usually see a familiar face.”
She loves tennis and plays regularly at the Milford Tennis and Squash Club, is a keen runner and is learning to sail at Keyhaven Yacht Club, where they also keep a small boat.
Susie started New Forest Senior Moves in 2013. She provides a service to help older people move home – from de-cluttering, to helping find a new home, liaising with other professionals and getting the property ready for sale. She also works with solicitors who hold Power of Attorney over an older person’s affairs who may have already moved into a care home but need help selling a property.
