When not at work

Glenn tries to keep fit by playing squash and five-a-side football. However this is somewhat self-defeated by the inevitable trip afterwards to a pub for a couple of beers! He is a life-long fan of Leeds United, despite living in Sheffield (dangerous!). He lives in Dronfield with his wife Aurora and has a daughter who is now a teacher (a noble profession). He’s mad about music, having a somewhat eclectic taste in music. He likes travelling and has visited many parts of the globe including South Africa, Thailand California, Mexico and Cuba. He is currently taking Spanish lessons and hopes one day to travel in Latin America to see more of Mexico (especially for the fantastic food) and to visit Colombia.
