I live with my partner Ian in Alvaston, Derby. We met through Scouting and Guiding nearly 20 years ago and that’s what keeps us busy much of the time. My current project is co-organiser of Peak 2020 a large Scout & Guide International camp for 7000 people at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.

I enjoy the theatre and socialising with family and friends and have four nieces and nephews who keep me on my toes. I like to spend time gardening at home and hill walking, particularly in the Lake District with friends.

I have worked in a variety of industries over the past 25 years and am looking forward to the MIDFIX challenge.
