  • Hobbies: Cooking (setting up my own catering business) and travelling
  • Likes: LOVE my family and so proud of our two adventurous girls; meeting people & long walks with the dog and whoever wants to come along!
  • Dislikes: Rudeness and people who think themselves better than those that they come into contact with. Injustice and people who should know better taking advantage of others
  • Favourite Holiday: Too many good ones to mention – holidays and breaks are essential and enjoying each one for what it is is what makes them all special but if I had to pick one, returning to our honeymoon hotel in Italy 25 years on – amazing
  • Attitude to Life: Always be kind and live it to the full. You can’t say that you can’t do something until you have tried it and proved you can’t – enjoy every experience and learn from the ride on the way
