Things about me…

I am passionate about writing, love the Channel Islands, especially Alderney ~ a unique place, grow my own vegetables…lots of them anyway, I appreciate Iona style contemplative worship occasionally and I teach teenagers and young adults, trying to instil in them self worth and confidence. I am also privileged to be compiling the memoirs of a wonderful 103 year old gent from Surbiton and finally I’ve acquired an unusual enthusiasm for sea planes and flying boats especially the history of them!

Here are my
