30 years with Marks and Spencer covering virtually every aspect of Retail from Store Management to Merchandising to Stock Control to Logistics to Computer Systems to Administration in the UK and Europe.
Raised in a village in South Yorkshire , I took a keen interest in gardening from a very early age with much encouragement from my grandfather (a miner) who was very enthusiastic about his allotment. Following a degree in horticulture, and a very enjoyable time, at Reading University, I drifted into a job as a basic nursery worker at Hilliers near Romsey where I found a great and lasting interest in growing ornamental trees and shrubs. Opportunities arose for me over the following years in this receptive and flexible family company, where I ultimately held the post of Divisional Director. Following retirement in 2009, my wife and I saw travel as a priority for leisure and learning. We now spend much of the winter in tropical developing countries, combining city living with “out in the sticks” experiences, moving from place to place by public transport, often to the bemusement of the locals. I have 2 children and 3 stepchildren, all grown up.My interests are travel, cooking, walking and gardening.
After qualifying from Imperial College in London I worked in the midlands as a junior doctor before settling in the Wessex region to train as a Radiologist. I trained briefly at the old Lymington Hospital and was appointed as a Consultant Radiologist at the new Lymington Hospital in 2012. Thanks to the state of the art equipment provided by The League of Friends, my colleagues and I are able to provide our patients with a comprehensive range of diagnostic services.
