Ruth is married to Stephen.  Together they edit Union's monthly magazine, Broadcast, and are both active in the music group where Ruth plays guitar, recorder and sings (not all simultaneously!).   Ruth oversees the administration of the church.

In her spare time Ruth enjoys country walking (in fair weather!), singing with the Wycombe Philharmonic Choir, watching costume dramas on TV and film, and visiting National Trust properties (and tea rooms!).
