The fifth of our 12 Faces of Christmas

To celebrate Christmas this year we've asked some of our people to share what they love about the festive season. Today, Anna Wood gives us her answers.


Describe your job in 5 words

Like a box of chocolates

If you weren’t a lawyer, what would you be

I used to run a small business in the hospitality sector providing waiting staff for weddings and private/corporate events, so I expect I'd be doing something along those lines.

What/where is your favourite place in Gloucestershire

Anywhere outdoors in the beautiful Cotswolds countryside with my partner and our two sons.

Which best describes you at Christmas? 'Enough with the Christmas songs' or 'Show me the mince pies!' 

I am organising the World Cup of Mince Pies - does that cover it?

What’s your favourite Christmas ad?

The John Lewis one... no - not that one, the one that John Lewis & Partners made for @johnlewis on Twitter in 2018. Genius.
