I was delighted to be asked by Trevor and Ali, to become involved with TREE as a Director.
As an Army Officer for over 30 years, I have been fortunate to travel extensively, train with NATO countries and meet a great number of very interesting, loyal and dedicated soldiers. It has been a privilege to serve with these individuals, whether on deployed operations, in training establishments, on a rugby field or in a social setting. I have made some lifelong friendships and I am keen to help and support these veterans and other groups through this Community Interest Company.
My interests over the years have been outdoor orientated, whether as a Scout Leader, volunteering with the RNLI or camping with the family. So, I would like for others to have the opportunities to experience and enjoy the rugged countryside of this wonderful woodland near Alston, in order to promote good mental health and well being.
