Where do you live/where are you from?

What is your favourite place to visit in Yorkshire and why?
Having two small children, I have spent the last eight years visiting all the lovely parks in Sheffield and my favourite place will always be Graves Park as it holds great memories of my children growing up.

I would really like to do the Transpennine Real Ale Trail and to stay at the Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa in North Yorkshire for the weekend.

The first time my husband took me to Mirpuri Tawa on London Road – the chicken jalfrezi saag is amazing.

Making a brew with a Yorkshire tea bag.
Favourite piece of trivia about the region?
Jelly Tots (one of my favourite) sweets were invented here.

Worst experience or thing about Yorkshire?
I love Yorkshire!
What is the most overrated thing about Yorkshire?
Yorkshire Puddings – mainly because I am useless at making them.
