Stephen was born, bred and educated a Midlander, and Stephen settled in Alresford in 1978. He started a family in 1981 and worked for Hampshire County Council for 32 years until his retirement in 2010. He has been in Alresford Rotary for 15 years …….so he must like it. Retirement seems to be another way of saying that Stephen is now involved in a lot of community stuff which you don’t get paid for but it keeps him out of trouble. At least he has the time to satisfy his itchy feet and take himself to some interesting parts of the world. To sum up, Stephen is an Alresford addict and away from work much of what he has done has been about putting his half-penneth into the community and getting so much more back.
