Life drives and passions

When he is not at work, Jack is a clumsy squash player and a slow but enthusiastic Parkrun regular.  He enjoys the outdoors, spending most of his holiday time either hiking in Scotland, touring around Europe’s best wine regions or skiing. Jack is a self-confessed DIY enthusiast and often has a new project on the go, although typically with very mixed results!
