Tell us more…

Pete lives in Mansfield with his young family and loves his work that much that he deems it a hobby! His spare time is spent with his family and completing DIY around the house – lockdown projects were a garage conversion and 60m2 of raised decking!

What do you love to do in your spare time?

I love spreadsheets, databases and visual basic coding! I also enjoy volunteering; I am a member of the Mansfield Rotary and I’m actively involved in community activities. I have previously been a secretary and chairman of CrimeStoppers local committees and a trustee of NottsWatch and also Nottinghamshire Neighbourhood Watch.

We are so thrilled to have Pete on our team and we are looking forward to what he can bring to the group for 2022.
