What was your first car?
What was your first music record?
What’s your favourite Lake District view?
When you travel back to Keswick and come up to the top of Keswick on the 591 as you drop down, there’s a wonderful view on the left-hand side across Bassenthwaite Lake, and it’s absolutely breath-taking!
What’s your favourite walk in the Lakes?
Hmmm, I haven’t been on that many. I used to be fit when I was younger and I loved Scafell Pike.
What’s your favourite season in the lakes?
It’s got to be summer! Everyone is much happier, everyone has got a smile on their face. It’s just a wonderful time of year, everything is looking its best.
If you were an animal what would you be?
A lion. A British Lion.
Any other interests/ committees?
I’m a member of Cumbria County Council. I chair the local area committee and I’m the president of Workington Rotary Club. I'm a board member of Citizen's Advice Allerdale, Workington British Legion, the Scot's Guards Association and the Gospatric Freemason's Lodge in Workington.
What’s your favourite sport?
When I was in the army it was hockey. I like to watch football and cricket as well.
