I have lived in Hessle for the last five years, along with my wife. We grow as much fruit and veg as we can in a suburban garden and I believe that everyone should have the opportunity, should they so wish, to become more self-sufficient and reduce their dependence on imported produce. I am a member of Hessle U3A, an organisation devoted to improving the richness of life to those who have reached the ‘third age’ I serve on the committee of Hessle U3A.
We previously lived in Worcestershire and I remain a member of the Solihull and District branch of the MS Society. With present day on-line facilities, I am able to continue as their newsletter editor. I retired as the traffic scientist at the National Traffic Control Centre in Quinton and we moved to Hessle to be closer to our family.
I am also a member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists, now rebranded IAM Roadâ€…Smart. IAM Roadâ€…Smart promotes safer driving and courtesy and consideration for all road users and I am passionate about making our streets safer for ALL road users, including pedestrians, children and the less able. I am keenly interested in promoting local people to support local trades and services. To that end, I have started a local website, www.hessle.org.uk and would welcome input from local people to expand the website to become something that will be useful to the whole community and of which everyone in Hessle would be proud.
