Neither the fountain of all knowledge nor a mine of useless information, but always delighted to be of help.
Originating from West London, he has lived in West Kent for over 25 years. Married to Sarah and with two children currently in higher education, he is a keen traveller to Greek islands for summer holidays, stimulated by an interest in ancient classical history and is a diehard supporter of “Spurs”. An enthusiastic rather than competent sportsman now resigned to the occasional game of golf or tennis, but an avid spectator of most sports; he relishes walking in the countryside with thirst quenched in a welcoming hostelry.
