2 x grown up daughters – Lauren & Harriet.

Pets

None but I hanker after a fruit bat.

Drinks

Depending on the time of day, a nice cup of tea or a glass of red wine.

3 words that describe me

Articulate, eloquent, gregarious.

Couldn't do my job without

Still getting genuine enjoyment out of meeting new people.

Hidden skill

Appearing on stage regularly in amateur musical theatre productions.
