My Personal file

So, what about me?! I love music and art, especially being creative with my wonderful grandchildren!  I like to describe myself as an adventure traveller, whether it be in the rain forest of Borneo, on a camel trek in Morocco, trekking in the foothills of the Himalayas or just sitting on a beach/ mountain in Scotland. I seem to have acquired my own mini zoo, with dogs, a cat, a tortoise and numerous fish.

I am a trustee for 'Action Against Stalking' (AAS), and I believe in taking action to support the 'common good'.
