Three months ago I was approached and asked if I would consider becoming a Governor at Widewell Primary School. I was already working with the school on the Junior Field Gun project. In the weeks I have been working with the children I have been impressed by their behaviour and demeanour and welcomed the opportunity to become involved further by taking up the position of Governor at the school.
 
I was born and educated in Nottingham before joining the Royal Navy. I served a full twenty-five years in the Royal Navy, which gave me a very broad aspect on life. When I retired from this I used the knowledge and experience gained from my time in the Royal Navy to develop my own business. The business was very successful and I eventually retired from this only six years ago.
 
During my years in the Royal Navy I spent a great deal of my time taking part in various sports. I represented the Royal Navy and Combined Services at Hockey, also playing regularly for Plymouth Hockey Club. In addition I was part of the Devonport Field Gun Crew, representing them five times at the Royal Tournament, which was held in Earls Court. I was also a co-founder of Ivybridge Rugby Club.
