What Gets You Out of Bed?

The coffee machine, which I love as it is on an automatic timer so ready for me when I get downstairs. The hope of a new challenge is always a thought in my head too.


The Best Piece of Advice You've Ever Been Given:

From my Dad – to never give up trying.  This has been useful so many times when I have got to the end of my tether!  Carrying on is infinitely better than giving up.  If you fail, you can always say you did your best.


Tell Us An Unknown Fact about Yourself: 

I play the Harmonica which I became interested in playing after catching a harmonica given to me by a rather famous person who shall remain nameless!


What’s One Thing You’re Proud of?

My children all of whom seem happy and successful.


What do You Do Outside Work?

Work! No, seriously, I play the Harmonica and sing in a rhythm and blues band, the CCJ’s (coming to a pub near you soon hopefully!)

He repairs and restores all stone work, from statues to memorials, as well as taking on private commissions.
