VICKY AND JIM’S SUFFOLK
Vicky was brought up near Eye and trained as a professional deer-stalker. Jim, ironically perhaps given the boar’s propensity for digging, trained as a landscape gardener. A shared love of working dogs brought the couple together on a training day in Thetford forest.
They try and find time for country pursuits, both enjoying shooting in season whenever possible, or perhaps a day’s fishing – you may catch Jim tying a pot-bellied pig fly using a boar’s hair, as per tradition.
“We love cooking at home too, but if we go out it might be to the Sturmer Red Lion or the Bull Auberge in Eye which is run by the parents of a friend of ours,” says Vicky.
