INTERESTS

I enjoy being a successful member of the Worth Valley Young Farmers Club, through which I have won; rosettes and prizes for cooking, handicraft, judging animals and showing pedigree dairy animals and sheep. I have also been awarded a certificate from Princess Anne, for recognition in representing Yorkshire for 'Country Spotters' twice at the National Royal Agricultural Show, which demands elevated knowledge of agriculture and nature. Recently I have educated myself on developing web pages using eXtensible HyperText Markup Language (XHTML) thus expanding my interest in Web Page Design and Development. I currently hold the position of Webmaster for a local Agricultural Contractor, having successfully developed their new corporate website.
