An Unusual Life
Paperback | English
Peter was born in the United Kingdom and went to Witley Junior School and Rodborough Hill Temporary Secondary School, a wartime army camp conversion. He then entered a carpentry and joinery apprenticeship with a local firm for five years, winning a prize in the Southern Counties region for outstanding work coupled with City and Guilds of London exams in 1961 at Guildford Polytechnic.
In 1966 Peter moved to New Zealand and worked in Invercargill for eighteen years before moving to Nelson in 1984. He was involved in over thirty organisations from Scouting and Air Training Cadets to the Woodworkers Guild putting in over ten thousand hours of community service. In 2000, with health problems, he was forced to give up work and volunteered at Founders Park.
