There are many of us bird breeders who enjoyed a chat with Peter in his birdroom surrounded by his favourite canaries!
The kettle was always at the ready for a cup of tea and conversation embraced his breeding prowess, his grandchildren’s love of his birds and always the history of Rayleigh recounting his days as a boy with one particular story which involved him and his mate ploughing a field at his school so that the teachers ensured he wasn’t bored!!!
Peter was proud of his career in building and played an important part in many important projects nationally.
He was a long serving member of the Brentwood CBS and not only was I pleased to take a photo of his last award at the Brentwood open show but was also able to welcome him to one of the Bird Keepers Association bird sale shows where he enjoyed renewing acquaintances new and old!!
I remember him stating more often than once that he had led a charmed life no doubt due to his long & blissful life with his wife Dot!
We will miss you Peter (1932 – 2015)
