Story
Introduction
I'm the manager of the eCommerce Content Team for Shop Direct Group. my team look after sites including Littlewoods,Very(.co.uk and .com) & Woolworths. 

I've worked in eCommerce since 2003 and consider myself an expert in (X)HTML and CSS, I've also got a background in Software engineering which means i can usually turn my hand to most scripting languages/paradigms. I'm as happy coding in C as i am in Javascript. I've dabbled in Perl, PHP, ASP, VBScript. I boild this down to an ability to abstract a problem down to discrete steps. 

Outside of my professional capacity, i'm an avid badminton player and fan, i play for Mellor, who are based at Mellor Sports Club in Mellor, High Peak. I learnt my craft in the Blackpool and District Badminton league. I now help coach juniors every saturday morning. During my short career i've played in BUSA for UMIST, Mid Lancs for Springfields, Bolton for Forest, Liverpool for Fords. 
As well as playing and coaching badminton i also take photo's occasionally, but only if specifically requested, occasionally selling those photos, usually via my connections with Tronex Europe, who have made use of my services on a number of very successful occasions.

There was plenty of space for our party, service was great although a couple of our party waited a long time for their food. On the other hand there were 13 of us which would prove a challenge for any restaurant I'd imagine. Overall a really good night and the staff looked after us.

Parking is cramped, hotel always feels a bit stuffy and slightly run down. Could use a refurb to bring it into the 21st century.

Only there for a very short period while my wife got her hair done for a wedding locally. Staff were very accommodating.
