What was your first car?
My first car was an old blue Volvo, I don’t know the model number, it was an old workhorse and it was affordable in terms of the insurance.
What was your first music record?
Oh I’m not sure, it was probably Queen.
What’s your favourite Lake District view?
Is probably from Miller Ground looking over Windermere, it’s good for silhouette pictures of the Claife Hills.
What’s your favourite walk in the Lakes?
Oh Orrest Head, you can’t beat a simple view like that.
What’s your favourite season in the lakes?
Probably spring time, because it’s when all the plants start growing and I’m a keen gardener.
If you were an animal what would you be?
I’d probably be, maybe a bear so I can legitimately sleep all winter and not get woken up.
Any other interests/ committees?
I’m a parish member, I’m chairman of Staveley and Ings Parish Council. Staveley is a very active area.
What’s your favourite sport?
If I was going to watch sport it would be athletics, in particular, sprinting events.
