Janice Barnett, whose dream became the Really Big Dream Company

Mark, who dreamed of renovating and maintaining an old property, running his own archery range and riding around on motor bikes.

Mark Bradburn has been a keen archer for many years and competed for South Wilts Archery Association. He has experience in both field and target archery and is a qualified archery instructor. He brings this experience and enthusiasm to our on site range where he now coaches novice archers.

Mark, by his own admission is a 'Petrol Head' and has driven a vast array of vehicles in his time from a battle tank on MOD Porton ranges to a Class 1 articulated truck on the Formula 1 circuit, from a fork lift to a Harley Davidson. He now heads up Burgundy Bike Breaks and enjoys sharing with others the wonderful and diverse roads this region has to offer the biking enthusiast.

In his spare time Mark relaxes by walking. He is happiest when the walking is hard and challenging. His current aspiration is to tackle the Eiger.
