60 SECOND INTERVIEW: Alison Theobald


ALSION Theobald is joint chairperson of the Weymouth Business Improvement District. She was born in Middlesex and has lived in Weymouth since 1988. She went to school at Budmouth and then Weymouth College before going to work in the financial sector where she is now a fully qualified independent financial advisor.

WHY do you live in Weymouth? 
Because it is a beautiful place and this is where my business is.

WHERE do you go for your holidays? 
Somewhere different every year. My motto is that you never visit the same place twice. For my last holiday I went to the Maldives.

WHAT is your favourite time of the year? 
Summer because the weather is lovely and Weymouth is a fantastic location to be near the sea where you can make the most of your surroundings.

WHAT is your favourite film? 
War Horse because it is a great story which covers all emotions.

WHAT is the scariest thing that has ever happened to you? 
Coming face to face with a snake in a zoo when I was a child. It was not in a display but hanging round a woman’s neck who was showing it off to visitors. It was just in my face when I came round a corner and I screamed and ran off.

IF YOU could live your life again what would you be? 
The same as I am now because I am so happy with a lovely business and a lovely family.

WHICH people would you invite to your dream dinner party? 
Marilyn Monroe, so I could see what she was really about, and Winston Churchill because I just think he would be incredibly interesting because of the circumstances he lived in and the decisions he had to make.

WHAT would you do if you won the Lottery? 
Pay all my friends and family’s mortgages off. There are no pockets in a shroud.

WHAT do you hope the future holds? 
Health, wealth and happiness. Those are the three things that matter.
