I left Fowey Grammar in 1967 and joined Auctioneers and Estate Agents Rowse Jeffery & Watkins. I was proud to be President of The National Association of Estate Agents in 1997 and am an active member of The Association’s College of Fellows.

I am a member of Better Bodmin, a group of business leaders appointed to develop the Sustainable Wealth Creation Plan for Bodmin, and from July I will be President of the Rotary Club of Lostwithiel. What time is left I am on my bike.
