About Vicky Hinchliffe

I love gardening, wildlife and the great outdoors. I also have a passion for running and have completed 3 half marathons to date - with more planned. I try to live by the motto, 'be pretty on rest days' so when I'm not training I like nothing more than some pampering, high heels and lip gloss!

I am now in Marketing and am involved in spreading the word about how great TLH is!
