Where do you live? Royston
What is your favourite local shop?
Dhesi store on Icknield Walk – for a small local shop they seem to have everything, its like Aladdin’s Cave in that place and Steve and his staff are so friendly and helpful.
What makes you happy?
Apart from Pinot Grigio?!….Sunshine, music, animals and my family and friends. Being outside generally makes me happy – being out with dogs and watching them play makes me very happy.
What do you love about your work?
Literally everything! I have never been so passionate about a job, working with animals full time is something I have always wanted to do. Taking tired dogs home knowing they have had a brilliant day is when I know I have done my job well. What can be better than spending your days with dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and even chickens?!!
What is your favourite way to spend a Sunday?
I often work on Sundays but I usually get a chance to watch my ten year old son play rugby. He plays for Royston Rugby club and I really enjoy watching him train or play matches. The rugby crowd are a nice bunch of people and the breakfast and coffee at the Heath is excellent, so even in the rain it makes it all worthwhile.
Most memorable Royston experience?
Sledging on the heath in the snow – everyone seems to come together in the snow and enjoy the hills of Royston.
What has been the most valuable life lesson that you have learnt?
For me it has to be that doing a job you love is more important than one of real financial gain. Material things have no real value, happiness does 🙂
Four people you would invite to dinner?
Peter Andre (I know!) but I love his voice and he could sing for us, Robin Williams – I found him hilarious and loved his humour, Jamie Oliver could come and do the cooking and Noel Fitzpatrick (Supervet) because what he does is absolutely incredible.
What are you looking forward to most this October?
We are going to spend a week in Sea Palling, Norfolk in October. We love it there by the seaside, it doesn’t matter what the weather is doing it is just a lovely place and I am looking forward to some family time and spending a fortune on my son’s 2p machine addiction in the Sandy Hills Arcade.
