On the way back from speaking at a Rotary Lunch at Wigston I found myself almost ‘back home’ where I started the first few years of my life on the Netherhall Estate in Leicester. I had been talking about my life journey and it seemed appropriate to have a quick look at life 45 years since I left Tunstall Crescent! I often reflect on what life would have been like if we had stayed there longer into my teens. I have been very fortunate that I have had so many opportunities and a fulfilled life. But none of it has been down to any particular hard work on my part that sets me apart from my school colleagues and neighbours from the estate. It’s a trait I don’t like seeing amongst people who think they have made it die to their hard work and enterprise. I haven’t and I know most others haven’t either. They probably had the same lucky breaks I had and being in the right place at the right time.
