Tell us a fun and interesting fact about you
I'm married to a farmer and I once lost a whole herd of cows. I was bringing them in for milking and I forgot to get somebody to turn them into the farmyard, and they then carried on miles up the lane! Many hours later we managed to round them up... I wasn’t very popular!

What is a typical day in the office?
My typical day at work...my job is to recondition and clean customers' cashmere garments. I also create and send out Swatch Requests so customers can see our new cashmere colours before they purchase from us. As part of my daily routine I also run the staff tuck shop in aid of our charity, The Christina Noble Children's Foundation.

What’s your favourite place or thing to do in Harrogate?
My favourite place in Harrogate has to be the Royal Hall, it has been beautifully restored and is a lovely venue for entertainment.
