David and Kathy are both committed Christians
David is a Guard on the South Tynedale Railway, Alston. We have both recently been commissioned as Prayer Chaplains at Carlisle Cathedral. David is Church Warden at St Michael's, Stanwix.
David was diagnosed with bowel cancer six years ago, had surgery and finished a 30 week course of chemotherapy. He was given the "all clear" in 2015 and the next check-up is in 2020.
In 2014 we completed the Thames Path National Trail, some 200 miles from the source near Cirencester to The Thames Barrier.
David has recently passed Level 2 Wine and Spirits Trust Certificate in Wines and Spirits with Merit after studies at The Lancashire Wine School and Kathy has followed with Level 1 certification.
Our summer walk 2015 was the 100 mile long South Downs Way National Trail from Winchester to Eastbourne and last year the 75 mile long Capital Ring walk through London suburbs.
We both still run for pleasure, try to take in a hike once a week and delight in taking the Settle-Carlisle Railway to Skipton for a pizza.
