I have been a member of Rotary since March 1987 previously at High Wycombe RC and since 1998 at Ferndown RC. I am also a life honorary member of the Rotary Club of Ipswich, Queensland, Australia. I have been a member of most committees but my particular passion is membership. I have been club president and was an assistant governor for 3 years. In my working life I was a Police Officer and a career detective. Married with 2 sons who are both married and we have 6 grandchildren. My wife and I love travelling and we have visited Rotary Clubs in Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Australasia.
