Claire Gets Her Skates on

Claire Ashley knows better than most about the virtues of standing on your own two feet.
For when she’s not at her desk dealing with enquiries and orders, Customer Sales Advisor Claire is busy maintaining a healthy work-life balance as a figure skater.

Figure skater Claire triumphed in her first ever competition

Having taken up the sporting pastime five years ago, she’s now become something of a twinkle-toed starlet. And proving that practice makes perfect Claire scooped first prize in a skating showdown held at Silver Blades ice-rink in Cannock last week – her very first competition!!!
“I skate three times a week,” she said.
“I started skating in 2012, it is my absolute passion.”

Last week’s competition saw 27 ice-skaters go head- to-head and toe-to-toe for glory and it was our Claire that triumphed in the adults section, performing to Taylor Swift’s chart smash Shake it Off.
“There were different categories with each of the winners automatically entered into an inter-rink competition which takes place at Coventry Ice Rink on July 15,” she added. So now it’s all systems go for Claire to put her best foot forward (again) a week on Saturday!
