Leaving academia to pursue a more hands on career I have spent the subsequent years enjoying and exploring the wondrous variety of foods and flavours available to us today. In particular trying local dishes when overseas, I highly recommend fish and banana (Madeira).

Now settled local to Rowton Castle with my family I enjoy sunny days in the countryside, picnics on hill tops and leisurely bike rides down the back lanes. I spend a lot of time working on the garden with my wife, looking for interesting plants and trying to convince an array of unwilling vegetables to grow.

The friendly and considerate nature of my colleagues makes working here a pleasure. It is good to know that our efforts go, in someway, towards making beautiful memories for someone's special day.
