I like to keep fit particularly through swimming even if gym attendance is usually erratic! I also enjoy watching most sports especially football, rugby, cricket and tennis. I follow the England football team with my son with whom I also hold season tickets to watch a well known premier league club in the North West! I also enjoy eating out and travel with my family. Quieter times are spent reading non-fiction.Back to top
