Brigid and Dave

Brigid was born in Kitwe in Zambia. She lived mainly on a farm in the middle of the bush which belonged to her godfather, who was part Zulu part German and part Afrikaans and not a blood relative!

She has been around the block when it comes to jobs, having worked as a teacher, fitness instructor, cartoon drawer, adventure park supervisor, gardener and then a columnist for a local paper. All before taking up the job of gardening and environmental guru on BBC Tees.

Dave's got many feathers in his cap - not least providing the voice of BBC Tees travel news during the week - but on a Sunday he's all about the great outdoors.
