Peter was born in Leicestershire, in 1941 and educated in Leicester itself. He spent just under 40 years in the building society movement, the last 20 years or so with the Nationwide. The last 9 years were as Winchester manager of initially 3 branches, but reduced to one after the Anglia/Nationwide merger. He retired in 2000. Peter joined Southampton West Rotary club in 1973, before moving to Alresford in 1986, and joining the Alresford club in 1988. He has been a member of Rotary for about 38 years in total. He is married to Hefin (Welsh!) with two grown-up children with their own families. His other interests are St. John’s Parish Church and the Alresford Horticultural Society, both of which keep him busy! He is very keen on travel, and since retirement have been lucky to go far afield to other countries.
