Personal Profile

I enjoy playing golf when the weather permits. My wife Sheila is a retired chemical pathologist. She often joins me playing golf, when she is not gardening or reading. We have a small collection of rare orchids. I enjoy painting landscapes in water colour. Sheila is a keen bird watcher and knows species and habitat of several hundred birds. We go on golfing holidays once or twice a year.

I had the opportunity of working for Sir Richard Bayliss who was an enormous tower of strength for developing my personality.
