I was a Civil Servant for 37 years working in various Government Departments. Since retirement in 2009, I have developed varied interests – medieval history, lost rivers of London and music are just some. I play the piano, duet in clubs and sing in a Community Choir.
Seeing the world has taken me to fascinating and faraway places like Peru, Hawaii, Tanzania and Antarctica. I have enjoyed cruising across vast oceans, marvelling at the sea’s capricious nature, the constantly changing vistas and observing wildlife.
Boxing, cricket, tennis and football are my main sporting interests. I am a qualified FA coach and scout for an agency. I also enjoy quizzes and am always trying to broaden my knowledge.
A key aspect of my retirement has been volunteering – first as a Reader in a primary school and then participating in a project developing walks on the River Wandle, in Croydon. Now, through the U3A and Kingston University I’m researching old theatres.
About my Talk...
This talk has been created in powerpoint and I require a projector and a screen to make the presentation.
£60; locations over 20 miles from Croydon will require additional, modest travel expenses.
