I have been involved with Las Casitas since the beginning, when my father, at that time a director of Wimpey, purchased several weeks. I have been visiting almost every year since. My children spent many holidays there, learned to swim there, and almost saw it as their second home. I currently own seven weeks in March and November, and like many owners, often rent extra weeks.
Some owners may know me better for providing entertainment in the bar on Sunday nights during my holidays.
My career for 43 years was with Waitrose and the John Lewis Partnership and prior to taking early retirement to start my own business in 2008, I was head of the flagship Waitrose/John Lewis store in Canary Wharf.
At the General Election in May 2015, I was elected as a Councillor to the Chichester District Council, where I was appointed to the Cabinet as portfolio holder for the Environment.
I now have a small marine business, and work as a business consultant, helping local small businesses with internet marketing, technology and business efficiency. I am also chair of the Selsey Business Partnership, our local chamber of commerce.
I live with my wife Pat in Selsey, near Chichester. Between us we have 5 children and 11 grandchildren. I am a keen yachtsman and trout fisherman and in spite of my age, something of a computer whiz kid, much to the chagrin and amusement of my eldest son!
