I’ve lived and worked in this area for over 8 years now, moving here when my husband was posted to the area (he’s in the RAF). I studied part-time at DMU and went on to do the LPC in Leicester. It’s now my adopted home town! I love football, Kilmarnock being my team but I clearly now follow Leicester City. In my spare time I enjoy going to the football, reading, going to the cinema, drinking cocktails and walking my two crazy Labradors.
