It was rather nice to be selected as a trustee for Animal Rescue. As well as most of my cats coming from Kapellan, I’ve also been happy to be part of the vet team that helps look after the animals. I came to Kendal in 1996, taking over the practice on Stramongate, before establishing the Westmorland Veterinary Group in its new site. As I’ve now left the practice, I hope to be able to use some of my experiences of animal care and general committee work in helping Animal Rescue in its future. I spend my free time cooking, walking or wrestling either with our garden or my MGB restoration project.
