I manage the Mission to Seafarers Centre at Seal Sands and I love it.....its the best job I've ever had.
I married Mary in 1988 and still am.
Grew up in Great Lumley - Left school at 16 - Apprentice Organ Builder with Harrison & Harrison's, 3 Yrs training with Church Army in Blackheath, London - 5yrs working with Homeless in London, 12yrs fundraising in Midlands (made redundant) - 5 yrs joint managing Holiday Centre in Yorkshire Dales (resigned because I lost trust and confidence in Trustees impartiality towards managers and lack of Health & Safety). Moved to Hartlepool and currently managing Seafarers Centre for Mission to Seafarers.
I've started to teach myself the tenor sax which I hire from Crinson's guitars, Park Road, Hartlepool.
Stumbled across Musicians Unlimited playing at the Studio and am hooked.
