Richard’s spare time these days revolves entirely around his 4 children. A devoted father and husband he spends most weekends ferrying his kids to various events and clubs. When the summer comes, the entire family can be spotted across the many beautiful camping and caravanning parks we have in Dumfries and Galloway. When he can find time to himself, Richard is an avid reader and a passionate follower of Scottish football and rugby.
