I have lived in Cyprus, on a full time basis, since moving from Kendal in 2003. I am a keen walker, piano player and a generally busy person. I am happily married to Eileen. We have been together for almost twenty years. I am also a big fan of rugby league, being a fan of Bradford Northern, now Bradford Bulls, for over fifty years! We support orphans in Romania. A former colleague has a Romanian mother, who travels there twice annually, to ensure all the money we raise goes to the needy children. Our walking group: The Happy Wanderers, Paphos. supports the orphans too, with regular contributions to the children there. Since we left Cyprus in 2013, I have continued to maintain my links with Cyprus. We have made three visits: two last year. My wife, Eileen, will have survived twenty-five years of marriage on the 4th Of July. My mother asked her last November: “Are you still sane?” Mum died last December. Her ashes are in our garden in Cleveleys, under our apple tree!
