Want to know just a little bit more about John? Here are three little things that’ll help paint a picture…

  • Where were you brought up?
    My family moved to Pembrokeshire when I was 4. It was a fantastic place to grow up in the 70’s. I spent the summers on the beach and the winters watching the rain fall and thinking everybody in the world was having more fun than me!
  • Dance floor or bar stool?
    Dance floor, dance floor, always the dance floor. 
  • Favourite item of clothing?
    My vintage purple shot-silk suit. I’ve had it years and it had already had an interesting life before we met.
