Gareth Edkins from Ripley, Derbyshire
Ripley, Derbyshire

“I'm 40 and from Ripley in Derbyshire.

“I'm a proud father of two boys and family is important to me.

“I work for a family run bakery in Derbyshire and I'm a night shift supervisor. We produce fresh bread, cobs, cakes and savoury products each day to despatch to our 55 shops around the Derby/Nottingham area.

“I have three brothers who are my best friends and we're always out for a beer or a game of footy together.

“I'm currently an active person who enjoys many sporting activities but mainly football. This is only recently due to hard work and determination of losing over 6 stone in weight, which has in turn given me many more experiences in life.

“I recently attended my very first TBBC Members meet with the amazing group of people at The Yorkshire Beardsmen. I was very nervous but they were a brilliant bunch of people and I hope to attend more meets with them.”
