Writer, surfer, TV presenter, keen shrimper and cook (and qualified RNLI Surf Lifegaurd)
Martin Dorey is a writer, surfer and TV presenter. He presented BBC2’s 10 part food and travel series One Man and His Campervan and is the author of two books about campervan cooking and campervan life: The Camper Van Cookbook and The Camper Van Coast.
Martin lives on the Cornwall coast with his wife Joanne, his children, Maggie (11) and Charlotte (10), a medium sized dog of unknown origin called Bob, a 1979 VW campervan called Dave and five surfboards. When he’s not raging at the state of the oceans, cooking, surfing or pretending to work he goes fishing. He is very bad at it.
It seems, from the latest report on global Consular activity released today, that we are getting slightly better at being Brits abroad - even if we are becoming a little more careless with our vital documents.
Now that summer has finally arrived it might be time to start thinking about getting out there and getting wet. How about surfing in Devon or Cornwall? Sun, surf and good times await those who make it down the M5.
So go on, do something stupid. Take a chance on that tandem skydive, google that slack lining school, splash out on that ice holing holiday and book in that bobsleigh break. It's all covered, although, interestingly, I couldn't find skinny dipping anywhere. Oh well.
I don't know whether or not the headmaster knew what was going on in his school on a daily basis but I know he failed to report the accusations until his retirement. Instead he tried, at least, to get rid of the abuser so he could do no more damage within the school itself.
Here we go again. It's the summer time, there's some royal action going down and suddenly we've got a whole bunch of bank holidays all at once. You know everyone is going to have the same idea and will make a dash for it. Quick! Pack up the camper van and head for the coast!
