Karen Durrell

Born in Taplow in Buckinghamshire, youngest of 3 brothers and a sister, I’m married to Giles and we have one beautiful daughter. I live in Milton Keynes.
I have worked for the EBU for over 22 years, starting as Reception Administrator, becoming Office Manager.
Do I play bridge? No, too busy at the moment with family life but will one day!
What do I do at the EBU? I manage the staff and facilities of the office, along with the membership department.
What do I do in my spare time? I love to walk so we do plenty of family walks, also I cycle, I have taken back up arts and craft with my daughter and love to read.

Some random questions.
I would like to be stranded on a desert island with Benedict Cumberbatch; a man that can play Sherlock and then a Star Trek villain, then Julian Assange has got to be interesting.
If I wasn’t working for the EBU, I would like to be running a B&B in the Lake District.
My Ideal night out with friends have a good chat, eating and a glass or 2 of wine. My ideal night in would be a games night or a good movie with my family, lots of snacks and some bubbly.
