What is your favourite food? I like any food with pasta and a passata mixed together.
What is your favourite holiday destination? My favourite holiday was Stuttgart in Germany. I went with the college years ago although I liked their beer a bit too much!
What was the last book you read? The last book I read or finished? One of the books I’m reading is “The History of the Russian Revolution” by Leon Trotsky and one of the last books I finished was “The Origins of the Family, Private Property and The State by Frederick Engels”. Both books I’d highly recommend. As for more light-hearted books, I need to get back to “The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy”, which I stopped reading for some unknown reason.
What’s your favourite TV programme? I don’t like TV much but when I did my favourite programme was a comedy like Red Dwarf or Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
What was your first pet and its name? My first pet was a terrier cross named Chester. We had him when I was three and he lasted 21 years. We had a cat named Bella that also lasted 21 years.
What is your favourite film? My favourite film without a doubt is Taxi Driver.
What painting or photo do you have on your wall or desk? There’s no pictures by my desk although I do have some old European and Latin American maps to fill my curiosity. If I did have a picture it would be of a rough sea.
Who would your ideal dinner guests be? I don’t have an ideal dinner guest, I’ll eat with anyone.
What is your biggest regret? My biggest regret would be not revising for my exams when I was at school!
What makes you smile? It makes me smile to when I remember delivering my baby girl at our old house. It wasn’t something I had prepared for but in the heat of the moment I soon learnt!
What hobby/hobbies do you have? I usually spend my time reading or playing the guitar. Snooker is good but I can never afford the light.
What do you like about Bracknell Forest? I’ve been in Bracknell Forest for two years. The best part has to be the open country and dense forestry. My 16-month-old daughter, Constance, loves going through these for walks in her pram.
What is the one thing you would like to change about Bracknell Forest and why? If I could change anything in Bracknell, then it would be for Heatherwood Hospital to remain as a fully functioning hospital, birthing unit and all.
If you could be asked one question what would it be and what would you answer? If I could be asked a question of my choice, well, my answer would be ‘you choose!’
