Our weekly question and answer feature is back and this week it is the president of the Rotary Club of Thame Peter Hook who takes to the spotlight.

What do you wish they’d taught you at school, but didn’t?

How to cook. Tricia my wife would have loved that.

If you could pass one new law tomorrow, what would it be and why?

Stop opening shops on Sunday so everyone can have a day “of rest”, just like Christmas Day.

If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?

To fly would be fun; at least I would not have to put up with all that waiting at airports or sitting in traffic jams.

How do you relax?

I love sports as I like to be active and to be with people. I also like DIY but not under pressure.

What’s your greatest fear?

Heights, it’s got worse as I have got older.

If you had to give up something tomorrow, what would you find it hardest to live without?

I have got to say my wife or I will live to regret it, but Madison our cat comes a close second.

What’s the most important lesson that life has taught you so far?

Never give up because if you do you have lost.

If you could leap forward to the year 2050, what would you expect, or hope, to find there?

Fewer cars, four-day working weeks and less trouble and suffering in the world.

What websites do you value the most?

As President of The Rotary Club of Thame, our website I look at regularly, I want the club to be projecting the right message to the public.

What do you go out of your way to avoid? Tell us about it ...

Ironing I just cannot get my head around it.

Always leave them laughing - so please tell us a joke ...

Two packets of crisps were walking along the road. A passing car stopped and the driver asked if they would like a lift. ‘No thanks’, said the crisps, ‘we’re Walkers’.
