Simon was born in Lancashire where, as a member of the Scout Movement, he spent many long and happy formative hours, camping and exploring the moors and hills. These experiences were the foundation of an abiding passion for the outdoors that runs through his life.

Simon continues to support the Scout Movement, with over 20 years adult service as a volunteer Leader. In this capacity, Simon has enjoyed various roles, including acting as County Nights Away Advisor, Manager of the Activity Permit Scheme and District Commissioner, providing training, assessment and mentoring for in excess of 800 adults and countless Young People across East Lancashire.

As unofficial mascot for Wood-Sage, Willow enjoys running around on our 47 acre site. Some of her favourite things in life are to have her tummy tickled and to be the centre of attention, and her aspiration in life is to become the official mascot for Wood-Sage!
