Hi I’m Chris,(middle name Meladana which I love) I live in the village of Banwell in Somerset. Following redundancy I studied diet and nutrition and am now a Nutritional Therapist, I work with people with disabilities, teenagers who suffer with obesity and I run a men only consultancy called ‘Boyz Allowed’
I’m married to Mike, we love to travel, and spend our holiday time in a small village in Portugal where we have made many friends over the last few years.
I have two Jack Russell dogs – Poppet and Harley and a cat called Mishka – these animals are all inherited from my children! (But i love them!)
Horses have always been my passion and until 4 years ago I have always owned a horse. Due to rheumatoid arthritis I didn’t replace my last horse when the time came, but I still ride whenever I can.
I have three children, a son age 28 yrs – a concert pianist and gymnast (www.benjaminshepherd.com) living in London, a daughter age 31 yrs a software engineer also living in London, and a daughter age 41 yrs living in South Glos + two grand children age 13yrs and 15yrs.
I play a little piano, and love all music, in the last 10 years I have bought decks and love to mix…not bad for a 61 yr old!.
Photography has become a firm interest, I have been keeping swan family photographic diaries for six years and take my camera everywhere I go.
