Maurice 

My name is Maurice and I am a coordinator for Link. My job is to take the telephone calls and then find one of our drivers to do the task. I am 65 years old and I served with the Royal Military Police and Wiltshire Constabulary. In my spare time over the years I have helped numerous charities and served as a Captain organizing the training for the Army Cadets. I am married to Ann who is also involved with Link.

Paul 

My name is Paul and I volunteer as a co-ordinator and driver for Link. I also serve as Vice Chair and Recruitment Officer. I joined Link two and a half years ago having moved to Westbury after living in Spain.

I joined the Link team because I wanted to get to know the area, its people and to get involved with the local community and I have certainly done that. Assisting our numerous clients with their important transportation needs is very rewarding and I have met some lovely people, often with fascinating stories to tell. To many of them we become friends over the phone or in driving them to their appointments.

I’m also a school governor for Matravers school.

VACANCY

 

Is this you?

 

John

My name is John and I moved to Wiltshire from Croydon with my wife April after we both retired in 2012 and we live in Hawkeridge. I was a surveyor by profession and for the last six years of my career I was a lecturer at Greenwich University.

Since moving I have joined Heywood Parish Council and I am the present Chairman. I am also on the Heywood and Hawkeridge Village Hall Committee.

I am a season ticket holder at Crystal Palace who I have supported for over fifty years through thick and thin, mostly thin it must be said, and I try to get to most home matches. I am a member of Somerset County Cricket Club and get to Taunton as often as I can for the County Championship games.   

My other interests include reading mainly crime novels, crosswords and cooking and I am at present building a model railway which is a long term project. We have an Airedale Terrier called Remy who needs walking and generally rules our lives. Thanks to her I have visited the A & E at RUH on two occasions, once for a broken wrist and the other time for a broken ankle, both suffered while out walking the dog.

Having retired and with time on my hands I wanted to contribute something to our community and I have become a co-ordinator with Link.
