Out the office:

During the week you will probably find Robert in Aylesbury’s Competition pool which helps him to keep pace with the ever varied sporting and social demands of his young family, and manage an energetic Springer Spaniel/Setter cross.

At weekends he can sometimes be seen in the rough, attempting to play golf, or at home unsuccessfully avoiding DIY projects.
