Not so long ago Barbara got a cocker spaniel, so she enjoys taking her on long walks.
Barbara also has four grandchildren who, she freely admits, are her world – and she likes to spend as much time with them as she possibly can.
She also likes going to the theatre and having meals out, with the odd glass of wine thrown in! Equally, Barbara enjoys watching a good movie or reading a good book; it is her way of relaxing.
Her favourite place to visit is the Lake District, but she admits to ‘loving a good shopping trip with her daughter or friends’ when the opportunity comes along!
