Jon retired in 2010 after 39 years as an accountant in local government in London, Cambridgeshire and finally Hampshire where he was County Treasurer for 13 years. He was also Treasurer to the Police and Fire Authorities. A freeman of the City of London he can also be found in the margins of Who's Who. He joined Rotary in January 2011 to volunteer in the Alresford community where he has lived with his wife Mary since 1983. His three children (and grandchildren) are living in Shropshire. Since retirement Jon has become a non-executive director of the Solent NHS Trust and indulges his interests in geography and bird watching.
