My hobbies include dancing and walking, which I do regularly throughout the year. I am also interested in languages and have studied Italian and Spanish. I love reading thrillers, particularly those of David Downing and Robert Goddard. I also enjoy a good romantic novel.


As I live within easy reach of the Chichester Festival Theatre, I often go to see plays and musicals. I also like seeing Shakespeare in the open air and each July I make a point of going to Highdown Gardens to see the Rainbow Theatre group perform. As Goodwood Race Course is nearby, I sometimes have a flutter on the horses.


I enjoy travelling abroad, especially to Spain where my son and his family live. I like to spend my spare time socialising with friends.
