The Grumpy Old One!

When did you join TBBT?

Started helping at Zest hub just before Coronavirus started, went to do a bag pack at Littlers Point for a day, and as they say the rest is history ”.  But officially 1st September 2020


What was your background before joining? 

Started as an apprentice in a progressive engineering firm that sent me to tech, then college and university,  left there to become works manager engineering firm then managing a packing company, then becoming the man from the Pru and being promoted to senior manager before starting my own engineering company before taking early retirement and a long earned rest (or so I thought)


What appealed to you about working for TBBT?

Thought my experience in the packing industry may be of some use to TBBT


What’s the best thing about your job?

Going home at the end of the day feeling absolutely shattered thinking my efforts might just have helped make someone’s life just a little easier


What’s your own favourite type of food?



What signature recipe would you share with TBBT members? 

That’s a tough one, I think it would have to be my Vegan chilli but others may argue it is my meat madras


Your top tip for reducing food waste in the home:

Plan meals ahead, make a shopping list and stick to it, you haven’t saved any money if you buy the special offers then end up throwing half the food away as it has gone off before you can eat it
