Quickfire Questions with Cllr Nick Davies
FAVOURITE PLACE IN DARTMOUTH?
Being a local there is so many to choose from! If I had a place of choice it would have to be sitting on the embankment in the sun watching our little world go by.
I’m a simple man with simple tastes, and I enjoy a nice chilled bottle of Crabbies Alcoholic Ginger Beer on my weekend off as a end of week treat.
MOST TREASURED POSSESSION?
My friends, I treasure each and every one of them. Friendship and the trust that goes with it is a wonderful thing and should be cherished and never abused.
I love a good book and could lose myself in one for hours. I have a shelf full of best books and I couldn’t possibly list them all!
Should really read “Must see without me movie” I’m a military reenactor and living history buff and do events in the summer season. The downside to this is I can’t help but pick fault with every wartime period movie that is released! However, I do enjoy any action and adventure movie too. I have very eclectic tastes!
ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE YOUR 18-YEAR-OLD SELF?
Don’t let others destroy your dreams. It happened, and it hurt, but I think I am a better person for the experience. I have often encouraged others not to make that same mistake.
HOW DID YOU END UP IN DARTMOUTH?
I was born into a Dartmouth family and I have lived here all my life. I’m 13th generation now and very proud of it.
ANY CUTE KIDS OR PAMPERED PETS?
My niece if that counts, Maja, my love for her is absolute.
CREAM FIRST OR JAM FIRST?
Cream of course! I love teasing my cornish friends over this, it’s a lovely bit of banter between us!
June 2007 getting awarded my Service Medal for St John Ambulance, I would later receive a bar, I haven’t really achieved much academically but 20 years in the service of humanity, as well as your community, is something to be proud of.
MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT?
Ask any of my friends! There is too many to list here!
EAT-IN OR DINE OUT?
I love eating out and it’s something I don’t get to do often good food and good friends for company, what more could you ask for?
EARLY BIRD OR NIGHT OWL?
I suppose I’m a bit of a night owl really.
BEST THING ABOUT LIVING IN DARTMOUTH?
The community, very close-knit and supportive of each other in many ways. The past 12 months has shown that community spirit beautifully.
WHAT ANNOYS YOU MOST?
Gossip! In a town like this, it spreads like a Bush fire, and in some cases, it can be malicious and it can do a lot of harm in a community like this.
WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?
Hanging out with friends, reading, walking, helping people out, attending living history events, visiting different places, spending time with my niece.
