ACTIVITIES & HOBBIES
I am part of a village choir, the Barton Stacey Chamber Choir.

The choir puts on concerts and regular performances during events and ceremonies around the area. I am also in an amateur dramatics group called the Barton Stacey VIPs. We perform musicals every summer and winter for the community. I have also designed programmes for performances, as well as helped out with stage backdrops and created a community website.
Occasionally I like to write fictional stories on online blogs as well as writing articles on my own personal blog. I also have keen interests in technology, gaming, comics, photography, food and reading.
