Time Out: Nick Chambers, Chief Executive of LACE Housing

The weekend has come back around again, and that means it’s time to kick of your shoes, sit back and enjoy another ‘Time Out’. This week’s quick fire questions are answered by Nick Chambers, Chief Executive of LACE Housing, who would like the ability to turn back time…

What is the first thing you do to get the weekend started?                                           Look at my ‘things to do’ list! I’m not very good at sitting down and there is always something to do. The list is prepared throughout the week and on a Friday evening I reflect on what’s in store for the weekend. I actually quite enjoy spending my weekends pottering around the house and garden… as long as I get to tick off the tasks I complete!

What is your hobby?                                                                                                         I am very much into history, so I enjoy visiting historic places of interest. I also enjoy keeping fit and, although I’m not as active as I should be, I love a good walk and an occasional 10K run.

What is your favourite movie?                                                                                         There are so many, but I either enjoy a fast action movie or one that is based on a true story. If I had to choose one, I’d say Enigma.

If you hadn’t been successful at what you do, what would you be doing instead as a career?                                                                                                                           I always wanted to either serve in the police force or be a coach driver and have my own business.

If you could have any superpower what would it be?                                                     The ability to turn back time; we take so much of our lives for granted and I would love to relive some of my early years again.

What is your favourite genre of music?                                                                           I enjoy any music from the 80s, particularly ‘Give it Up’ by KC and the Sunshine Band as it reminds me of a special holiday in 1983, and ‘Together in Electric Dreams’ by Philip Oakey and Giorgio Moroder.

If you could travel to any moment in time where would you go?                                   I would visit the early 1940’s to appreciate how society pulled together during a time of conflict.
