Ray lives in Duns with his wife and two sons. The family are active in local rugby, football and cultural activities and their two-year-old cocker spaniel Cocoa also keeps them busy. Ray is slowly creating a vegetable garden and finding occasional time for cycling, but cycling which is very gentle down our lovely quiet back lanes, not racing on the roads! It’s easier to dodge the potholes on the back lanes..
