Colin moved to Alresford in 1986 when he was appointed Deputy Headteacher at the local Community Sports College. In 2004 he joined the Rotary Club of Alresford and has enjoyed the fun and fellowship of regular Monday evening meetings. At the same time he has been encouraged to make a contribution to enriching local community life by taking part in a range of Rotary activity. Colin retired in 2008 after 35 years in education and now spends his time sailing, hill-walking, playing golf and visiting family in New Zealand and Australia. He has enjoyed participating in Rotary fund-raising activity which then enables the Club to respond positively to those in need both locally and occasionally nationally and internationally. At a personal level he takes part in competitive Rotary sporting activity such as skittles and petanque. He was Treasurer from 2009 – 2011 and looks forward to his year as President.
