Outside of work, I enjoy watching and playing football, music and walking my dog. I am a fanatical Blackburn Rovers supporter and regularly attend home matches with my two children. I am also an FA Level 1 Qualified Football Coach and have managed a Junior Boys team for Kendal United Junior Football Club, from under 7 to under 14 level and now assist with the Under 10 Junior Girls team - enjoying the process of helping the players progress in terms of ability and excellent team spirit.I am also a former Governor of Stramongate School in Kendal

“ Experience was excellent. ”

“ I particularly noted the fact that even if I just "popped" in with a quick question for Stephen Greenwood, he would immediately come downstairs to see me and nothing was too much trouble for him. His calm approach enabled me to stay calm at times when things were a bit fraught! Many thanks for your support and sensitivity to my divorce situation. That made things easier for me. ”

“ Very efficient, everything was dealt with quickly. Extremely happy with the service, made buying our first home less stressful. Highly recommended - would use again. ”
