“In my free time I enjoy spending time with my 3 kids, sharing a love of the great outdoors, teaching kindness and compassion, and the importance of protecting our planet. My escape is running, biking, or swimming in the Yorkshire Dales, the local lake or river and keeping fit for competitive endurance sports. I am a parent governor for the local school and cub group where my children attend, and I champion community events helping at junior parkrun as an Event Director.
