What is your background?
Financially and materially poor background with not a lot of emotional support. Drifted into working in the NHS following 2 years of unemployment and stayed there for over 30 years, so my professional background is in the health sector but in admin and management (particularly in Public Health). Done quite a bit of voluntary work over the years and worked with lots of volunteers. I like to be the centre of attention but hate being around people.
What inspires you?
People being nice to me and to each other. Nice is such an underrated word but, nice is good enough for me. There’s a saying “It’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice”.
What is your perfect weekend?
Lots of football on the telly, a night out with my mate Terry on Saturday night and roast lamb for tea on Sunday.
What is your favourite thing about Co:Create?
It’s calm, it’s relaxed and it’s friendly.
What’s your favourite movie?
Airplane – makes me chuckle every time.
