I was born in Fulham, where my grandparents all lived, and apart from some part of my education in the Midlands have always lived here. I became involved in the early days FGNS as a volunteer and then helped to run fundraising book sales for several years. I was convinced to join the trustees at a friend's 90th birthday party as I had a little more time available after standing down as a school governor. I taught economics for many years, and still work as an examiner. Now luckily I am able to spend more time on my allotment.
