David is offering a friendship service at the Majestic Hotel every weekday morning,
David has now retired to Harrogate, Yorkshire after an interesting lifetime based on his work and hobbies,
His latest project is to sit in the lounge at the Majestic Hotel, near the centre of Harrogate and have a talk or play table games with whoever comes in for a coffee. More details of Meet David for a coffee may be found by following the link.
Most people having coffee are retired but some are younger carers, while others are still at school and thinking of making a career working with the elderly. He has information about charities requiring paid employees or part-time volunteer either based in Harrogate or Knaresborough areas.
Before returning to the UK, 20 years were spent in Portugal, first as a director of a Japanese owned company, then a retired person with plenty of time for his hobby of off-shore sailing, and finallly as co-owner of a tourist business.
Before going to Portugal, 15 years were spent in Wales in a Welsh speaking village near the border and Chester. Early life was spent in Ormskirk in Lancashire while the war years were spent with grandfather in the nearby village of Bickerstaffe. Reminisces of those years and anecdotes are being written.
In Portugal, David wrote some sites when Internet was in its infancy which are still successful today.
