Interests & Hobbies 

I currently play Outside Centre for Bridgnorth rugby club 3rd team and when I’m not recovering from injury I like to get out on my Bike and explore the Shropshire hills.


Spare Time 

I have a Jack Russell called Mr Smudge and a Cocker Spaniel called Barney who  take up a lot of my time with walks. I have participated in cookery classes in a number of countries and enjoy putting that knowledge to use by cooking for my friends and family.
