My name is Nick Riley (Nicholas John Riley – but only when I’m being told off!!)
I am a Landscape Architect from the UK – won an RHS Chelsea Gold Medal in 2014 with my friend John Everiss – I raised the £46k we needed to do the garden and the sustainability plan for its reuse.
I am here on holiday with my family and in laws for 7 days – was worried it might be like the film Cocoon, but happy to say it isn’t!! Day 1 and I’ve organised MYB ride with some crazy dudes on Monday – slightly worried ???? I will struggle !
My wife is Anj, generally happy when I am away from her ????.
We all love travel as a family and adventure makes it perfect- I generally don’t like working on the rain and miserable NW of the UK !!
I love classic cars and have restored 3 Morris minors, a Triumph Spitfire and watched my Dad achieve his greatest triumph, restoring his Riley 9 Monaco – picture attached – his second best achievement ! ( Mum had me didn’t she, but Dad had to sell his MG A , so perhaps not!!)
Anything else you need to know – oh yes, football is for overpaid prima donners!!
CR7 Postcode , funnily we live at PR7 – Chorley, Lancashire, UK. Near to great MTB country and a famous few soccer clubs!!
