I have lived in the Peak District all my life which has fuelled my passion for the countryside from an early age. I regularly work around popular areas like Kinder scout, Edale, Bakewell, Castleton, Buxton, Hathersage, Stanage and Ladybower. I also work in the Lake district and Snowdonia national parks.
I work as a qualified Mountain Leader and a member of the Mountain Training Association (MTA) and British Mountaineering Council (BMC).
I also hold a current UK Athletics licence as a coach in Fell Running Fitness (Fell LiRF).
I am an accredited Duke of Edinburgh Supervisor and chairman of my local Duke of Edinburgh scheme with a valid CRB check. I provide support to busy families who’s children require assistance going through the award scheme.
I hold a current Wilderness First Aid qualification and hold civil liability insurance to five million pound.
