Personal

‘Relationships are very important to me and I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am actively involved in our local Anglican Church community and my faith is at the centre of how I respond to other people. One of my hobbies is playing bridge regularly at one of the local clubs and I have recently re-joined one of the County leagues. I have always enjoyed music, having studied it university as half of a combined honours degree (with maths). It was a real pleasure to go to concerts when my younger son was playing violin in student orchestras. I also love walking, especially along coastal paths. A particular favourite of mine is along the North Devon Coast at Westward Ho!’
