“I got into beekeeping by attending a training course on what I thought was an endangered species, the Honey Bee, it was held in a barn on a farm where there was absolutely no heating at all and we were warned to attend in warm clothing. We were provided with a hot drink mid-morning but continued to shiver, by lunch time I decided that something must be done, so I went to the car and got two blankets. After a lunch of hot soup and a sandwich, we sat in our chairs, muffled up with clothing and then wrapped the blankets round us to try to keep warm. I have to say, after that year all training courses were in centrally heated accommodation.
My biggest work achievement has been building up a security business from nothing into a multi million pound company that is still growing. My experience and business skills have been very useful to me whilst serving as a trustee.”
