A retired paediatrician (children’s doctor). Almost 40 years working to help sick children. Many rewards but some heartaches. Worked in Reading, Cardiff and North Devon.
A love of anything mechanical, usually that uses or oozes oil !
Love of the West Country and Somerset and North Devon particularly.
Own woodland in Somerset. Love the trees that are older than me and will live longer.
A love of the sea and boats. Sailed as crew on the Kathleen and May historic schooner. Loved every minute of it. Now sail in the Bristol Channel but respect the sea. Also a skipper on the Appledore Instow Ferry (www.appledoreinstowferry.com) and love that too.
Honoured to receive the Doctor of the Year award 2008 from the Well Child charity.
