Currently his granddaughter, Debbie, owns and runs a garage up there which was left by Zak’s late wife Lisa, who died in 2019.

Lisa and Zak returned to the village in 2019 and got remarried, but Lisa died on her wedding day.

Later Zak went back up to Scotland but has returned for family events, such as Eve’s christening in March 2020. His last return was in January 2021.

He went back to Scotland to help Debbie find someone to run the garage.
