Friends & Family


Maria, my wife was a retired Community Nursing Sister having worked on the District for over 30 years.

I have two step-children although I don't think of them as step-children, but my own.  They are both now grown up.  Simon was a Marine Chief Engineer working for P. & O. Ferries, but decided to give that all up and took up full time tennis coaching.  Unfortunately, he had a serious accident (was run over by a lorry in the Ukraine) and is now back living in Surrey .  He has made really good progress with his injury and has even played a bit of tennis!  Amanda is a Sister at the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford, Kent.  She has two children, a boy (Alex) and a girl (Katherine).  Both of them are now working for Local Aurthorities.

My daughter, Ruth used to be secondary school teacher (teaching A Level Geography as well as Mathematics) but is now working as Company Secretary in their  I.T. Business.  They have been partners for many years.  He is a thoroughly nice guy who at one stage, took his Private Pilot's Licence on helicopters and has taken me up for a "spin" in the past.  GREAT!

The photo is of Ruth in Cornwall.

They are to me totally distorted and freakish animals who apparently are difficult to train, stubborn and have pretty dirty habits!  Give me a dog that is trainable and not stupid.

Why not get a PROPER dog.  I like animals but..........
