Introduction:

I enjoy showing people my country and explaining our heritage and customs. My interests include World War 2, Winston Churchill and the Normandy beaches. I enjoy garden tours plus working with families with children, maybe seeing some of the Harry Potter sites. Mainly I work as a driver-guide taking small private tours, especially families or older people with walking difficulties, in my own car. I also lead walks and work with coach tours. I enjoy working with people who use a wheelchair to help them make the most of their holiday.
