Recently moved back to Banbury after 8 years of living in London, where I was Centre Manager for two business centres, one in Wembley and one in the city, so I come with plenty of experience in running a successful centre. In my spare time I enjoy baking, taking my dog, Millie for long walks and going to the gym.
