Three things I like:

Shrovetide, marshalling and my family.


Three things I don’t like:

Olives, anchovies and snow.


Up’ard/ Down’ard:

Up’ard, all the way.


Born and bred:

I’m an Ashbourne person born and bred.

My mum and dad are Jenny and John Dawson, I have a sister in Canada, Lisa Coates and two brothers Craig Dawson and John Dawson.


Family matters:

I’m married to Andrew and we have a daughter, Kirsty, 22, and four sons, Matthew, 19, Joseph, 17, Thomas, 14 and Oliver, six.

We also have two dogs, a Jack Russell called Tilly and a chihuahua called Daisy.

Being a mum.


Proudest moment:

When my daughter Kirsty had her two children, Amira and Elliemay and when my son Matthew climbed Everest with the army cadets in 2010.

There’s loads of proud moments being a mum of five.


My ideal holiday:

Kenya, on safari. I love elephants. I want to bath one.


Favourite food:

Steak and chips, a bit of salad on the side as well, but it’s not essential.


Inspired by:

My mum inspires me a lot and my friend Helen Fearn because nothing ever gets her down.


If you ruled the world:

I wouldn’t change anything.

It’s all down to free will, so unless you take that away and have complete domination, then you can’t change anything.



Don’t let them grind you down.
