Happy Birthday Maddie – you’re old enough to drive a tractor now!

Alli and I just wanted to wish a happy 16th Birthday to our wonderful daughter Maddie, and we both really hope you enjoy your day – you’re only 16 once!

As you can see she’s always been adventurous …

Aged 4 at Stowe Landscape Gardens – something was obviously very exciting! 

As most of you have probably guessed, she loves tall-ships, pirates and anything to do with the the sea. She is also finishing up her grade 3 youth sailing certificate, and after her GCSE’s next year is planning on following in Alli’s footsteps and aims to study History at university. Ultimately she wants to be a Maritime Historian.

Her she is in her natural element with her sailing instructor, Graham. He’s really proud of her and is already lining her up as an instructor next year! 

We are both really really proud of you and hope that your future is full of happiness and lots of adventures!

No matter what we’ll always be here!

Happy Birthday!

Looking towards the future!
