Dionne has been married to David since 1986 and have two sons. They spent the first 26 years of marriage in their home county of Oxfordshire. However, an opportunity arose which meant they could achieve their dream of moving to Wales before they retired. They worship together at St Paul’s Methodist Centre in Aberystwyth and Dionne is also a Methodist Local Preacher, preaching around the Ceredigion Methodist Circuit. Since moving to Wales she has been learning welsh. Dionne loves to sing and is a member of the music group in St Paul’s. She is also a very average guitar player, but helps out in the music group when the regular guitarist is unavailable. Dionne has got involved in village activities including training as a Community First Responder with the Welsh Ambulance Service and helping to run a Sunday School (Ysgol Sul Llangeitho) on a Wednesday afternoon, after school. Dionne and David also enjoy going to live sporting events – athletics, rugby, cricket and tennis are their favourites. Often they pitch their touring caravan at a local site and commute to the sporting venue. Their springer spaniel Molly, loves the caravan and sulks when its time to return home.
