Anne Sheehan

Anne Sheehan runs a music school in Sheffield, is married with two sons and two grandchildren.

'I have my parents to thank for my love of the outdoors. Both keen climbers and mountaineers, I was on camping weekends with them from the age of six weeks and push-chaired over the Lakeland fells before I could walk. My first steps were taken in Dove Dale, Derbyshire, and I walked the Pennine Way with my dad at 13 years old. It was always going to be love or hate and luckily it was love all the way.’
