Where's your favourite place in Somerset?

"THE COUNTY GROUND – cricket has been an important part of my life, both playing and supporting. I have many happy memories of the County Ground. One of the first things I did after retiring back to Somerset was to take up a membership at Somerset CCC once again."

Do you have a hidden talent or any hobbies?

"I am afraid I have no hidden talents. I have never been especially creative. My hobbies pretty much all revolve around sport and my family. Both boys play cricket and hockey and so many weekends are spent watching them play. I am also a lifelong Bristol City supporter and have the grey hairs to show for it!"

What's the best thing about your job at Young Somerset?

"Having had a career in education I have always been passionate in providing opportunities for young people. It is clear to me that Young Somerset shares that passion and I am looking forward to seeing the organisation grow and affect even more young lives."

And finally, Ninjas or Pirates?

"As Bristol Rovers are known as the Pirates, I would have to say Ninja!"
