I was born in West Moors and moved away when I met Pauline French. I work at Camellia’s at Everton garden centre as chef manager. We have three grown up children between us. I originally became involved with New Forest Gateway as a volunteer when my wife was deputy leader. I enjoy working with the members and find it very rewarding. I moved to Brockenhurst Gateway with Pauline and eventually became an assistant leader. I enjoy providing activities which enhances the member’s skills. Pauline and I have recently formed a sub committee which is a positive move forward for our fund raising.
