Pick Six: Lyndsey Harkin, Captain of Forest Ladies Team

13 May 19 interview: LeftLion

Our new regular feature asks well-known Notts folk to name a few of their favourite things. First up, it’s Lyndsey Harkin, the captain of Nottingham Forest Ladies team....

I love a good crime thriller. I used to read a lot of James Patterson and Karin Slaughter, especially the Grant County series that she wrote, but now I mostly read Julia Donaldson and other kids books to my children!

One film that I really love is John Lee Hancock’s The Blind Side, with Sandra Bullock and Quinton Aaron. It is such a great film that never fails to have me laughing and crying every single time I watch it.

I love Arctic Monkeys’ debut album and also Kanye West’s College Dropout. My favourite song from that is All Falls Down. I think I was in Year 8 when it came out, so it takes me back to some good memories.

Holiday Destination
I went to Cuba with my family when I was sixteen, which was beautiful. We stayed in a nice hotel on the beach and visited the capital, Havana. It was so interesting, especially all the old American-style cars there.

I’m really lucky that my mum is such an amazing cook, and that she loves cooking for us all. Her lasagne is very nice, but I’d choose her beef Wellington any day as the best thing she’s made for us!

Notts Spot
When I was young my grandparents used to take me, my brother and cousins to Gunthorpe to walk down the Trent, see the boats and skim stones in the river. I love taking my children down there now to explore.

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
