I moved to Monks Eleigh with my wife, Lynne, in 2014 from Essex. For 29 years I was a general manager running several car rental franchises for a company in Woodford Essex. On being made redundant I took up coach driving which I thoroughly enjoyed as it took me to many interesting places here and on the continent. I retired on moving to Monks Eleigh but found I still wanted to drive so now work part time for a local coach company. My hobbies include golf and gardening. I am looking forward to the challenge of contributing to the running of our splendid village hall.
