I grew up in the village of Longney and went to Longney Primary School. I am now married with 2 little girls, Freya who is 4 and Emmy who is 3. We live in Longney next to the chapel and Freya started at Longney School in September this year so we are keeping the generations going! I work full time so spare time is very limited but when I get the chance I can be found around the lanes and fields on my horse, or having a family outing with the girls and their ponies (and the dog!).
