I have had an allotment since July 2011 and in 2015 won best plot on Musgrove Farm and best plot in the borough.

I took early retirement from the N.H.S. 4 years ago, where I had spent 21 years as a maintenance electrician.

I am a volunteer at Willesborough Windmill, where I am the Miller and also carry out maintenance work to keep the mill complex working. At the moment Willesborough is the only fully working mill in Kent.

For about 5 months of the year I am kept busy at Christchurch Hall, where I am stage manager for ‘Ashford Panto’ and have the job of designing, building and painting the scenery and sets for the January pantomime. 2017 will be The Beauty & the Beast.
