Debbie has been married to John for 42 years, they are both still in work but over pensionable age. She has one son who teaches in Middlesbrough, and is a grandmother to Sophia who is 6 years old. She lives in Peterborough, but originally from Scotland. She plays tennis and enjoys walking with a group of ladies who are all similar age, so they “have a good gossip!”
