What was your first car?
Mini - a proper mini - an absolutely fab car.
What was your first music record?
Beatles "She Loves You", a 45 rpm.
What’s your favourite Lake District view?
Definitely can't choose! I love the 360 views from so many of the High Fells - and trying to work out what is what is always fun.
What’s your favourite walk in the Lakes?
Too many to mention but possibly my local Beacon Tarn and Fell - such views and its unassuming and still quiet.
What’s your favourite season in the Lakes?
Spring - when the skeleton of the trees can still be seen beneath the new haze of green.
Winter - when we do actually have snow and sometimes sun - and beautiful blue shadows.
If you were an animal what would you be?
A well-looked after free range hen destined for old age or the pot via a quick and kind whup of the neck!
Any other interests/ committees?
Keeping up with life is pretty all-consuming and I really like to spend time with family (here and away) and friends (here and away) - very time-consuming because I'm not a huge social media fan. Prefer visiting.
What's your favourite sport?
I only walk (a lot), pilates until lockdown. Love watching football, rugby, snooker, tennis at Wimbledon. I get excited about darts and crown-green bowling even when they're on the telly. Any sport except boxing and martial arts (and F1 nowadays!)
