SPARE TIME ACTIVITIES
       
CYCLING I am an avid cyclist and try to cycle at least 100 miles a week. I do all my own repair work and sometimes go on cycling tours around the country.
       
WALKING For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed hill walking. Unfortunately I have not been able to get out into the hills as often as I would like in recent year because my job meant that I had work most Saturdays. However I have completed two evening class at Stevenson College and I hope eventually to work towards the Mountain Leadership Award.
       
SCOUTING I am an Assistant Cub Scout Leader with a local cub pack. I have represented the United Kingdom at three World Scouting and one European events. I regularly help at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo supervising the scouts who are selling the official programs. This also involves selling tapes and CD's at the end of the Tattoo when the crowds leave.
       
PHOTOGRAPHY This is one of my greatest passions. I took my first photographs when I was about 8 and have never looked back.  During 2004 I did the photography at a number of friends weddings and I hope to go semi-professional in the near future.
   
CHURCH I am a committed Christian and regularly attend meetings both at the weekend and in the evenings during the week.  I will be taking part in the Easter Play in Princes Street in 2006.
       
RUNNING I am a keen runner and have completed a number of marathons including the London, Loch Ness, Potteries and Berlin.  During 2006 I hope to complete at least 3 more.
