After serving 12 years in the Royal Air Force I needed little convincing from my locally born wife that Stourbridge was the place I should call home, born of working class parents in a Yorkshire pit village I immediately felt at home. After 30 years 2 children and 3 granddaughters I now consider myself naturalised. A grammar school education granted me opportunities not available to children today, that priceless commodity social mobility saw my working career span fireman to regional manager twixt Oman and Shropshire. As a Chairman of two local community groups I understand the value and importance of volunteering and what it brings.
