Personal Page

After leaving school, I started a five year Engineering Apprenticeship in Chalfont St.Peter’s and attended High Wycombe College until achieving Advanced Qualifications. 

I met my wife, Mary, when we both lived in Amersham, Buckinghamshire. We first went out in 1961 to a traditional local fair and subsequently married in 1966.

In 1970 we moved to Cambridgeshire, when I accepted a managerial position with GKN opening a new company servicing East Anglia. A few years later I was promoted to Managing Director for a RTZ company and in 1989 I launched my own company, importing automotive goods from China.

I have two sons; Simon lives in Ellington with our eldest granddaughter Chloe and youngest son Andrew lives in Essex with our other two granddaughters Katie & Emily.

Although it does not have the highest elevation, Kilimanjaro is the tallest free-standing mountain rise in the world, rising 4,600 m (15,100 ft) from its base, and includes the highest peak in Africa at 5,895 meters (19,340 ft), providing a dramatic view from the surrounding plains.........
