This is Dave "English Dave" as we call him ...mostly because well he's English and also because for a long time no one knew his surname... so English Dave has just stuck with him....it suits....
English Dave is a volunteer at Charleville Castle, helping out in nearly everything thing they ask him to. He's a really funny guy with such a spark for life.
I first met him one of the nights i was hosting a Murder Mystery party in the castle, we needed a ghost that was angry.... he dressed in all grey and painted his face white ...and walked around the castle yelling at anyone that tried to talk to him .... that was his character... he put 150% into it ... just like he does with any of the volunteer work he does there... he's an absolute star and always a pleasure to be around.
