I live in rural South Nottinghamshire in the Parish of Whatton-in-the-Vale.

Having spent the majority of my working life as an Account in the Commercial sector, the last twenty years or so as Finance Director of both Private and Public Limited Companies my early retirement nearly twenty years ago has given me the opportunity to explore other interests. I was elected to our Parish Council some twelve years ago and have the honour to be its’ current Chairman.

My interest in Computers as a user dates from the late 1960s, system design and programming from the late 1970s.

I have had an interest in history in general since I was a small child. My interest in local history was sparked when I embarked on my own Family History.
