On a personal note...

Outside of work, Peter enjoys going hiking in the Peak District with friends, as well as climbing mountains all across the country. He is also a passionate boxing fan, enjoying both watching live boxing and going to boxing training classes. Peter spends evenings and weekends playing guitar, although the neighbours may not always enjoy it as much.
