    Outside the office

    Lisa enjoys spending time with her family usually outdoors; walking, cycling or watching her children’s football matches in all weathers (perhaps not so much fun!). Lisa is a member of Ellisons book club which meets monthly reading books from all genres. Lisa’s favourite pastime is having a good meal and a glass of wine with friends.
