“I very much enjoy going to the theatre, to see musicals in particular. I play tenor saxophone.
I have been an explorer scout leader for a number of years and enjoy getting outside when I am not at my desk. I love exploring places, and desperate to tick a few more countries off my bucket list as we emerge from the pandemic.
More recently, I started playing netball, and I am currently attempting to train for my first Great North Run in September, raising money for Motor Neurone Disease Association.”
