About Sue Gutteridge

Sue Gutteridge was originally a sociologist, then worked in adult education and made her way to children's play mainly via her own four children, but also via the adult education creche provision.

Sue has worked for Stirling Council since 1984, originally setting up a Shoppers' Creche, and then becoming Scotland's first Play Development Officer. She is currently Play Services Manager, with overall responsibility both for staffed play provision and the 100+ public play areas.

The team at Stirling Council try to promote a 'play landscape' approach to public play areas, to link staffed play provision and the use and development of public play areas, and to acknowledge and encourage children and young people's desire to exercise their imaginations, and experience risk, adventure and mystery.
