In My Down Time.....

During the hours I’m not working, I like to spend time and relax by playing the guitar, cycling, water skiing, snow skiing and spending time with my wife Debbie and my grown-up children Arabella and Harrison (without forgetting Bonnie and Boo our two little dogs of course!).

I also support several charities including The Outward Bound Trust, Oxfam and Leicester’s Air Ambulance Service.
