We have lived in Syresham for over 35 years, moving here from Towcester in 1978. Originally a city person (born and bred in Birmingham) I have found, indeed we all have found village life in Syresham very attractive and friendly. I served on the Parish Council way back in the 1980s for a few years. I was also involved along with my wife, in the Friends of Syresham School. In those early years I spent a lot of time refurbishing the house and extending it too, doing pretty well all the work myself.

My career was in secondary teaching mostly here in this county and concluding with my retirement in 2000 from Magdalen College School in Brackley. My specific interests in teaching were Humanities and particularly History. I was also very active locally and nationally in a major teachers' trade union and was also employed by that union for several years after I finished teaching.
