Away from work

Gary is a keen cyclist for commuting, fitness & getting out into the countryside with friends. He likes to walk his Jack Russell Bella who, at 12 years, is still very spritely. Gary is always seeking out new music and likes to go to gigs in the many small venues that Manchester has to offer.

"Gary McIndoe leads from the front and has unparalleled experience and knowledge. Gary provides no nonsense advice which cuts to the heart of the matter."
