I live in a place called Dolphinholme in a beautiful cottage style property with the River Wyre running through the back garden. I am well-travelled having visited many countries both in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
North Lancashire has lots to offer and I look forward to welcoming students to our beautiful and historic region.
