My working life revolved around education in one form or another as a teacher, youth and community worker and various management roles in Norfolk County Council where I concluded my career as Head of the County’s commercial education services. I continue my interest in education through school governance and community development by serving as a Trustee and Board Chair of a multi faceted substance misuse charity. I am also active in our local church and engaged in developing a project in an area of multiple deprivation.

Aeromodelling has been a thread throughout my life despite protracted diversions into sailing, windsurfing and ongoing cycling. Like many I built Keil Kraft models as a child with intermittent success and am now surprised that they fly much better than they did 50 years ago. Maybe I have learnt something over the years.  I enjoy several disciplines and fly RC sport models on a regular basis but my real interests are indoor FF and RC scale and small free flight sport models.  

I am a member of the South Norfolk MFC where I am a club examiner. The camaraderie and challenges of aeromodelling are important to me and therefore I like to be able to give something back to our great sport.
