My name is Sue Newell and I’m here working as HISO (HIVE Information Support Officer). I’m here with my husband Phill and we have two grown up children back in the UK. Rob is working as a Biochemist in Cambridge and Charlotte is a Marine Biology student. We’re looking forward to getting to know Italy better and to get involved with our Forces Community.  

The HIVE is a free and confidential information service to all service personnel, their dependents and veterans. We hold information on the local community (maps, guide books, recommended restaurants and places to visit from the community, etc.), information on relocation, transition, education, accommodation, operation deployment information support and MOD discounts. If you have any question at all, the HIVE is the place to visit (Villa Rosa, Via Traversa 1 Marenola 24).

I’m here to help! I work T 8-1, W 12-5, Th 8-1 and F 8-1

You are very welcome to call by, I’m happy to put the kettle on and be a friendly ear.
