Shell has been in Bristol for 10 years. They are originally from a small town in Devon. "I didn’t really feel I could be myself in that environment. Bristol has brought me out of my shell. This city definitely feels like home.
I’m involved in roller derby which is great but I can’t skate for shit so I’m predominantly a referee and non skating official. I’ve been very involved in my league including being on committees for 3 years. I’ve been a member for 4 years and spend every other weekend in an exotic sports hall somewhere in the UK.
Lockdowns been hard. I’ve had to stay close to home and I’m a bit of a social butterfly and only having the company of my wife has been a bit lonely. I’ve started taking up learning Irish and many other activities which have been quickly discarded as I am not a patient or crafty person".
