I am married to John, and have two grown up children, and two grandsons. I am an ex youth worker but I now work in retail for part of the week. I enjoy skiing and sing with Arnside Choral Society. I sometimes blow the dust off my bicycle and go for a short ride, but it is John who is the serious cyclist, although we do also own and ride a tandem.- there is nothing serious about that! - It is a foolish machine!
We feel fortunate that our working lives have brought us to Cumbria 27 years ago. It is a wonderful place to live and work, and the people are so friendly. We enjoy the slower pace of life that living here brings.
