Who inspired you when you were younger?

My Guide leaders inspired me. They were strong, independent and adventurous women who gave us the belief that we could achieve anything.

And what about now?

The young people I come into contact with. They have the energy and optimism of youth. Their enthusiasm for whatever they like to do reminds me not to get too stuck in my ways!

What’s your perfect Sunday?

A nice drive in the countryside, followed by Sunday lunch with family or friends.

What’s the best advice you would give a learner?

Don’t just learn how to pass the test, learn good safe driving and habits for life .

What do girls get out of Guiding?

I think Guides is a place where girls get to be themselves, try new and sometimes adventurous things in a secure environment.

And do you still enjoy going on Guide camp?

I have always enjoyed Guide camp and I still love it today.

If you could have a meal with three others, living or dead, who would you choose?

Dara O’Briain because he’s funny and intelligent, Freddie Mercury because he was fascinating, and Johnny Depp because he’s Johnny Depp!

What are you most looking forward to this year?

I managed to get tickets for one athletics session at the Commonwealth Games.
