After a good summer my beloved partner Doug Joiner died
unexpectedly in September 2014.
He had been a much loved presence on many of my courses,
joining in the 'unmissable' lunches and sharing his skills
and expertise during our joint Development Weeks.
His last major project for me had been the building of the
new extension of my workshop "fit for courses for the
next ten years".
