Life begins at 60?
Since I retired I have become a writer, flower arranger,judge for Yorkshire in Bloom assisted in and presented on a local radio station, volunteer on an allotment for adults with disabilities and help to run a social enterprise with profits going to mental health charities etc etc
I live in West Yorkshire and spend much of the summer at the Yorkshire coast.
this capacity, I am privileged to be able to visit villages, allotments,
residential gardens, workplaces and schools who enter this competition.I am always amazed at the effort and
creativity which goes into the entries.Individuals and groups use their own time to plant and maintain their
areas making beautiful spaces for us to enjoy.

My nephew has just been made a judge (Queen’s
Counsel) at a relatively young age.He
has a new, longer wig and a silk gown.I could do with them!Seriously,
though, I’m very proud of him.
